Title of Project: The People's Platform: Black Religion and the Forging of Black Resistance in Los Angeles, 1903-1953

Dr. Tucker-Price's research and teaching focus on African American history, religion and the American West, religion and media, and migration studies.  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 help to tell the story of how these migrants deployed Black religion in the American West to expand notions of freedom and re-define conceptions of American citizenship. Dr. Tucker-Price is a Public Fellow in Religion and the American West at the New-York Historical Society, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation.  Prior to her appointment at USC, she was the Guarini Dean's Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration in the U.S. Context at Dartmouth College.
