I'm a college professor with thirty plus years' teaching experience and also a scholar of African American Studies. I'm quiet and studious with a low-key sense of humor. I enjoy good friends, films, and food. I'm in a long-term relationship with Claudia, a new media artist. We both enjoy travel and have seen much of the world but would like to see more. My first book is called The Muse in Bronzeville: African American Creative Expression in Chicag(phone number hidden). I'm hard at work on my second.
