Dr. Porter is a scholar exploring racial identity development, self -awareness and self-efficacy, related methods and tools; discussing race in the classroom/ and among groups of people off campus in meaningful ways, from an objective space when we may feel uninformed, rather than not having the conversation at all; moving away from assumptions and stereotypes, and reducing harm; creative writing from an artist perspective, creating characters and text considering racial identity development referencing Dr. Cross’ Nigrescence Racial Identity Theory (NRID), reflecting on and thinking about characters in text, gaining understanding of developmental stages, where those characters are on the spectrum, their actions, their behaviors.
