Portland, Oregon

I taught for over 20 years at the University of South Carolina and now live in Portland, Oregon. My academic work is studying race and education in the United States and South Africa. For the last 10 years I have been involved in a study of teachers who fought apartheid. The project has produced many articles and two books, Voices from Cape Town Classrooms in 2003 and Teacher and Comrade in 2008. In addition, I have photographed people throughout the World for over 30 years. Photographs have been exhibited at McKissick Museum and the Museum of Education in South Carolina, and various smaller venues. I have also published my photographs in magazines and journals - Southern Exposure, Relix, Multicultural Education, Multicultural Perspectives, and the International Journal of Qualitative Research in Education. I am currently working on three photography projects - Children in India, Portraits of Somali Bantus in America, and Portraits of Race and Childhood in southern Africa and the U.S.
