A native of Philadelphia, Seth is a student of history in the BA/MA program. Majoring in history at CCNY has helped him to understand the environment and ideas he grew up with in Pennsylvania. Seth’s African-American and Puerto Rican descent has informed his interest in the historical relationship between race relations and religious traditions. Currently, his research examines the theological and social genealogies of Christianity in American life. Seth aspires to pursue a doctoral degree in history and to teach African-American, religious, and legal history at the college level.
Seth began playing speed chess in the sixth grade, and currently enjoys reading and collecting books on chess theory. Although his recent academic journey has occupied most of his time, he hopes to play competitively in the coming years.
