Guarini Dean's Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration in the U.S. Context

Cori Tucker-Price is a Guarini Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration in the U.S. Context.  Her research and teaching focus on African American history, religion and the American West, migration studies and religion, and media.  Her current book project traces the historical and social forces that shaped the practices of African American religious institutions in Southern California.   This project is informed by a diverse array of primary sources generated by Black migrants, which include church membership rolls, a migrant diary, photographs, convocation reports, and film scenes.  These materials help tell the story of how Black migrants employed Black religion in the American West to expand notions of freedom and re-define conceptions of American citizenship.  Dr. Tucker-Price has been selected as a Public Fellow in Religion and the American West at the New-York Historical Society, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation.  Her work has been supported by the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE), the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Foundation (FDR), and the Harvard Horizons Scholar program.
