Her first thesis (in English) is titled “Mildred Brown and the Omaha Star: Why the Black Press Matters?” It focuses on the 1966 race riots in Omaha and compared how both the Omaha Star and the Omaha World-Herald covered the event. Her second thesis is in French and is “The notion of racial uplift in the Omaha Star (Summer 1966);” it focuses on the content of the newspaper to show how it provided an uplifting platform to the North Omaha community throughout the years.
