Research interests: 


I was born (and raised) in the formidable township of Teshie in Accra, Ghana. In the second grade, I immigrated to Montréal, Québec, before my family relocated to Canada’s metropole.

I’m interested in twentieth-century African North American transnational freedom and labour linkages. My research interests also include Afrodiasporic urban communities, the Great Migration and labour history, Black Loyalists, and chattel servitude in the Americas. I’m a doctoral candidate in a Joint Ph.D. program in the Department of History and the Department of African American Studies.

In addition to support from Yale, I receive research funding from the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada as a Doctoral Scholar and Doctoral Fellow, respectively. I am also a Diplomacy and Diversity Fellow, as well as a Senior Fellow with Humanity in Action. 

Please be in touch, if you have questions about Yale’s doctoral program in history.
