His research has included topics in Jamaican political history, charismatic leadership in African America, Africa and the Caribbean and the class structure in Black America. He is the author of the popular book, Africa Is Not A Country. It’s A Continent! He is currently chronicling the origins and development of Black Studies departments on campuses across the country.
