Newark, DE 19716<div class="ExternalClass925FAC1A32F64A8A81758F8C5281DEE3"><p>​Although I’ve always lived in majority-Black areas, learning about Black history rarely took place outside of my own home. Once I attended Howard University and eventually transferred to Morgan State University (both Historically Black Universities), I was exposed to the history of Black activism and specifically, Black women's activism. This exposure led me to my own research projects on Black Queer activism, Black women rappers and their construction of womanhood, and exploring race motherhood. In my spare time, I like baking, watching movies, and trying different cuisines.</p></div><div class="ExternalClassA3DC46E9E593480DB02FDD68961EC44F"><p>​Morgan State University, B.A. History, 2018</p></div><div class="ExternalClass3A6AAF074FAB41D3AF8D53604F96FF5B"><p>​20th Century, Black Women's Activism, Cultural Institutions, Black Internationalism, Black Queer Studies, Black Feminisms, Urban Migration History</p></div><div class="ExternalClassA336137E67544CAEBEADAE7A1F6870D5"><p>​​Dr. Tiffany Gill</p></div>EducationResearch InterestsAdvisorrnelson@udel.eduNelson, Rachel<img alt="Rachel Nelson, graduate student" src="/Images%20Bios/grads/Nelson-Rachel.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />M.A. Program, American History
