Kerri K. Greenidge is an American historian and academic who is a lecturer in American studies at Tufts University. She is the author of Boston Abolitionists and Black Radical: The Life and Times of William Monroe Trotter. Greenidge is also the director of the American Studies Program at Tufts University and co-director of the African American Trail Project at Tufts's Center for the Study of Race and Democracy.[1][2]

Trotter was a Boston-based newspaper editor and civil rights activist who founded the Boston Guardian, an independent African-American newspaper, contributed to the founding of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and opposed Booker T. Washington race policies.

Previously Greenidge worked as a historian for the Boston African American National Historic Site, under the auspices of which she wrote and published Boston Abolitionists, a short history of the role that African-American leaders in Boston's Beacon Hill, Boston neighborhood played in the Abolitionism Movement in the Antebellum South era.[3]

Greenidge's research focuses on the role that African-American literature has played in the African-American Civil Rights Movement and particularly its more Black Power movement in Boston during the Progressive Era, as well as its intersection with Left-wing populism in the Democratic Party.[1]
