My research interests are in moral psychology and political philosophy. I study character, emotions, and attitudes and I am also interested in how they intersect with issues of race and gender. Click to read some of my work.
I believe in public philosophy and philosophizing outside of the classroom. Here you will find videos of my televised and web commentary on race, gender and sexuality, ethics, and mass incarceration. I also have classroom podcast lectures.
The UnMute podcast is a monthly podcast hosted and produced by Myisha Cherry. We talk to young, brilliant, and diverse philosophers as they give their take on controversial issues, pop culture, and the political & ethical dramas of our time.
I love philosophy. I feel alive when I read it, write about it, and discuss it with others. I think it is a privilege to be able to think about the fundamental questions we humans all have and to engage in these questions with EVERYONE.
