Since 1984 I have worked in a university environment for more than two decades.  I worked part of the first decade as a professional admissions counselor but the majority of it as student services administrator, both within the University of California system. I taught at Temple University, the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, Medgar Evers College and Lincoln University.  My teaching focus has varied from courses in the social sciences to courses in the humanities with the bulk of my courses in history. Besides currently being an Associate Professor in the History and Political Science department at Lincoln University I am frequent reader of dissertations for Temple University and the Graduate College of Union Institute and University.
I am a social scientist and historian by training.  I earned a Ph.D. and an MA from Temple University in Africalogy.  I also earned a BA in Afro-American Studies and an MA in Social Sciences Interdisciplinary, both of which were from San Jose State University (SJSU).  My SJSU master’s thesis was titled, "The under preparation of predominantly white colleges and universities to admit Black students." My Temple University PhD dissertation focused on the Lincoln University’s alumnus, Kwame Nkrumah and his specific contribution to the development of Pan-Africanism as a movement.  This dissertation was later be re-worked into a book with a similar title, published by Routledge and later  by the University of Sankore Press (2009).  I have seven chapters in scholarly books, 14 encyclopedia entries, and six articles in scholarly journals.  I currently sit on the board of two scholarly journals and have served as an on-screen consultant for the History Channel’s, The Spanish American War: First Intervention.
