His research spans both national and disciplinary borders. He has written several books, such as Sex and Race in the Black Atlantic (Routledge, 2010), which examines prurient histories that presented mixed-race individuals as pathological objects while attributing ethnically ambiguous figures as post-racial icons.
He holds both the Queen’s National Scholar Chair in Black Studies and Ida B. Wells-Barnett Visiting Professorships at DePaul University in Chicago as well as a Public Humanities Faculty Fellowship from the University of Toronto.

Daniel McNeal was always ready to lend a helping hand, even as a truck driver. According to his mother, Daniel mentored a disadvantaged youth he met while trying to arrange a scholarship for them at Boston College.
Police reported that during the crash, a woman on McNeal’s phone spoke without identifying herself; however, video posted by a friend shows the truck blocking Lincoln Avenue in Exmore and there may even be evidence of Taylor speaking on its recording.
Friends say trucking was in her blood. She often called her son on long hauls to keep him awake, though on Sept 11 her call went unanswered and no response came back from anyone answering it. Although her family misses her terribly, they also know she is still here with them and there will always be someone watching over their backs.
