Dr. Watson is assistant professor of Africana Studies and Individualized Studies at SUNY Buffalo State. His research focuses on international development, digital technology, and social activism in South Africa, Ghana, and the United States. He has developed a critical theory called “half-connecting,” which helps to explain the paradoxes of Western modernity from a Black Psychology perspective.

He achieved tenure and promotion at the University of Wyoming before returning to Buffalo.
