Kimberly McClain DaCosta is Associate Professor of African and African American Studies and of Social Studies at Harvard.

She was a postdoctoral fellow in the Robert Wood Johnson Scholars in Health Policy Program at Yale, is a recipient of a fellowship from the Advertiser’s Educational Foundation, and was a 2004-2005 fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. Professor DaCosta is interested in the intersections of cultural ideas of race and family and their practical effects.
