Perry, Kennetta Hammond Assistant Professor


Kennetta Hammond Perry specializes in Atlantic World history with a particular emphasis on transnational race politics, empire, migration and movements for citizenship among people of African descent in Europe, the Caribbean and the United States.   Dr. Perry teaches courses in the department of History and the program in African & African American Studies.  She has published in the Journal of British Studies, Atlantic Studies and Twentieth Century British History and currently, she is completing a book manuscript tentatively titled London is the Place for Me:  Black Britons, Citizenship and the Politics of Belonging which examines how Caribbean migrants in post World War II Britain appropriated and reconstituted imperial discourses of citizenship to fashion Black British identities and make claims upon their rights as British citizens.
