Katrina Bell McDonald holds the title of associate professor of sociology, is on the faculty of the Africana studies program, and served as associate dean of multicultural affairs from 2008-11 at The Johns Hopkins University. 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).
