Welcome to my website. I am an independent historian, focusing on the history of the Caribbean and Black Britain. I research, curate and write on Black British LGBTQ+ histories, and African-Caribbean diasporic histories with a focus on Grenada and Jamaica. I have recently worked at The Equiano Centre, Department of Geography, UCL, UK on various projects alongside Caroline Bressey and am an Honorary Fellow of The Parkes Institute, University of Southampton, UK. I was the co-curator with Caroline Bressey, Emma Chambers and Inga Fraser of the Tate Britain display 'Spaces of Black Modernism: London 1919–39' (2014-2015). I have recently worked with Diana Paton, Edinburgh University as part of Paton's Freedom to Believe project.
I am a member of the AHRC Network 'African-Caribbean Women in Post-diaspora Contexts' led by Suzanne Scafe, London South Bank University and Leith Dunn, University of the West Indies, Mona. From 2016 to 2018 I was a committee member of the Society for Caribbean Studies (UK). From 2008 to 2009 I was a Project Board member of the Black Cultural Archives (BCA) ‘Documenting the Archives’ project; from 2012 to 2017 I sat on the Archive Acquisitions Sub-Committee of the BCA and I am now a member of BCA's Heritage Sub-Committee. From 2015 to 2016 I was a member of the Steering Committee for the 2016 LGBT International Archive, Library, Museum and Special Collections (ALMS) Conference which took place at the London Metropolitan Archives, the Bishopsgate Institute and University of Westminster. From 2016 to 2017 I was a member of the Advisory Group to the Runnymede Trust Migration to Britain History Project and from 2015 to 2017 I was a Steering Committee Member of the Historic England LGBTQ Heritage Project.
