My interest in history is wide indeed and in many ways I was ahead of my time.

In my late 20s/ early 30s, I was a regular on local television in Toronto. I was featured twice for my work, once on Black history in the Renaissance period and later for my research on Black ballet dancers.

For a time, I acted as historian for Burlesque and Vaudeville Alliance,  In 2004, I curated Bad Girls Run Amok, an exhibition covering the history of burlesque in Toronto as part of the Mayworks Labour Festival.

I also did cultural research for the Genie nominated film, Remembrance.
