About

 

I am an educator, writer, scholar, and movement builder working at the intersections of religion, racial capitalism, mass criminalization, and abolition in Nashville, Tennessee. I teach college and seminary courses on religion, theology, carcerality, abolition, and social justice, and conduct participatory action research on the impacts of prisons and policing. I am the author of the forthcoming¬†White Property, Black Trespass: Racial Capitalism and the Religious Function of Mass Criminalization (New York University Press, 2024). In continuity with my teaching and writing, I organize and educate with the Nashville People’s Budget Coalition for a world of safety and abundance beyond police and prisons.
