Here you’ll find my more formal, on-paper publications. These reflect my interest in the three pillars of racial capitalism: policing and incarceration, food production and distribution, and state institutions like schools and hospitals. My biography of Victor Eugène Macarty, for example, illustrates how white supremacists targeted Macarty, a famous Afro-Creole musician and politician, to guarantee white power in state institutions like the Orleans Parish School Board of which he was a member. Then, as now, white elites understood that controlling systems of governance would allow them to rig these institutions to benefit themselves at the expense of everyone else.

Anyway, I hope you find these useful and check back soon; I’m grateful to have more on the way!
