Dasharah Green (she/ her/ hers) PS2 Presidential Research Fellow, Public Scholarship. Dasharah was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She uses experiences growing up in her, pre-gentrified, Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood as a backdrop to explore the intersections of Blackness. Her early interests trickled down to inspire her academic career as she went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in English honors, with a double minor in Africana Studies honors and Political Science, from John Jay College. In May 2020, Dasharah graduated from St. John’s University with a Master’s degree in English. She is currently an adjunct in Baruch College’s Black and Latino/a Studies Department. As a fourth year PhD candidate in the English department, Dasharah is currently working on her dissertation – which explores the genealogy of Black women’s storytelling, from the early 20th century to present day. She is specifically focusing on how these writers contribute to a borderless literary culture and reimagine/rethorize archival materials as a means of storytelling.
