About Me

Mickell Carter is a Columbus, Georgia native, doctoral student, and Graduate Teaching Assistant. Her research interests include Black Internationalism, 20th Century Social Movements, and the intersections between politics and culture. Her current project examines linkages between Black men’s style during the Black Power Movement, Pan-Africanism, and masculinity. Mickell is committed to, and is an advocate for, social justice. She works with the Ad council as an Advisor on Racial Injustice and has written for the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project’s Warbler Newsletter. Mickell has also written for the award-winning blog of the African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS), Black Perspectives, and the American Historical Association’s Perspectives magazine. 


Mickell earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in History with a minor in education from Columbus State University. Her senior thesis, “Visions of Terror: Black Panthers, Black Power, Black Art” examined radical politics and ideologies of the Black Panther Party through the artwork of artist Emory Douglass; the work was given the honor of distinguished capstone paper.


Prior to becoming a PhD student, Mickell taught High School Social Studies in Columbus, Georgia where she was awarded the Reimagining Instruction in Schools and Education Award. You can follow Mickell on twitter at @MickellCarter.
