We interview Dr. Tara Green about respectability.
She's an award-winning teacher-mentor-scholar who has degrees in English from Louisiana State University (M.A., Ph.D) and Dillard University (BA). With nearly twenty-five years of teaching experience, she is currently Professor and former Director (2008-2016) of African American and African Diaspora Studies at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. Her areas of research include Black gender studies, African American autobiographies and fiction (late nineteenth through contemporary), African women’s literature, African American parent-child relationships, and African Americans in the South. Believing that research should explore major issues of the day, she considers how literature reflects current social and political concerns.
