Criminology, Law, and Justice
I am currently working on the Sun Village Digital History Project, where our objective is to create a digital exhibit that shares the history of California’s Antelope Valley, Sun Village community. This digital exhibit documents African American community building in Los Angeles County’s northernmost region – the Antelope Valley. Although this history spans Charles Graves’ arrival during the Reconstruction Era to contemporary struggles for housing in the 2000s, the exhibit centers its focus on the town of Sun Village. Established during the mid-century peak of racial residential segregation, Sun Village became a site of community building, civil rights organizing, and placemaking that still endures today.
