I earned my PhD in 2003 in Afro-American Studies with a graduate certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. I research and teach classes on the area of Black women's intellectual history. My full profile is available online at ProfessorEvans.net
In the field of Black women's studies, I have authored three books: Black Women's Yoga History (2021), Black Passports: Travel Memoirs... (2014), and Black Women in the Ivory Tower (2007). I have also co-edited four books: Black Women and Public Health (2021) Black Women and Social Justice Education (2019), Black Women's Mental Health (2017), and African Americans and Community Engagement in Higher Education (2010).
This site is a notepad of my meditations on books. While I do not take requests for independent reviews, I do consider review publication requests from academic, trade, or news presses as my time and inclination permit. My goal for independent reviews is one per season with hopes of putting interesting books in conversation with one other. I write for me and mine.
