My name is N'Kosi Oates. I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Africana Studies at Brown University. My dissertation explores the Black Storytelling Movement from the 1970s through the 1990s. My research engages African American culture, aesthetics, literature, and social history from Reconstruction to the 1980s. My work has been published in the National Review of Black Politics, Journal of Africana Religions, and Black Perspectives.
