Channon S. Miller, PhD, is a Hartford-raised, interdisciplinary Americanist and Historian of Black women’s interior and exterior lives. She received her undergraduate degree in American Studies from Trinity College in 2011, and her and completed her doctorate at Boston University, also in American Studies, in 2017. She excavates stories about Black motherhood and Black diaspora from geographies often marginalized. The city of Hartford and the lives and activism of its Black communities since the mid-twentieth century, mass migration of Black people there from the South as well as the Caribbean – grounds and inspires her research. Her writings have appeared in Women, Gender, and Families of Color, Palimpsest: A Journal on Women, Gender, and the Black International, The Black Scholar, and more. Within the classroom, she invites students to explore the Black past and present by hearing and dialoguing with the voices and productions of Black peoples themselves.
