Her first book, "Embracing Sisterhood: Class, Identity, and Contemporary Black Women" (Rowman & Littlefield, 2006), analyzes how contemporary black women's ideas of black womanhood and sisterhood merge with social class status to shape certain attachments and detachments among them. She is currently completing "Marriage in Black: The Pursuit of Married Life among Native Blacks, African immigrants and Caribbean Immigrants in the United States" (Routledge, pending), a comparative study of black marriage in the United States among native blacks, African immigrants, and Caribbean immigrants, and whites (co-authored with Caitlin Cross-Barnet).

      A provocative exploration of one black man's memories of childhood. It interweaves Bradley's writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, "Dark Archives" aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males. Bradley powerfully combines image and text in this deeply moving meditation on narrative agency, on the family as archive, on being a young black man, and on being Andre Bradley. Andre Bradley (b. 1987) lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. Bradley is a graduate of Hampshire College where he was selected in 2008 as a James Baldwin Scholar and in 2012, was a recipient of the first annual Elaine Mayes Award for Photography. Bradley received a Master's of Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 where he was selected as a president's scholar and was recipient of the T.C. Colley Award for Photographic Excellence.
