Salamishah Tillet is an Assistant Professor of English and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She received her Ph.D. in the History of American Civilization in 2007 and A.M. in English from Harvard University and her M.A.T. from Brown University.

In 2010, she was awarded the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Award for Distinguished Teaching by an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Her book Sites of Slavery: Citizenship and Racial Democracy in the Post-Civil Rights Imagination examines why and how contemporary African American artists, writers, and intellectuals remember antebellum slavery within post-Civil Rights America. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Sites of Slavery argues that despite mainstream attempts to ignore the socio-economic legacies of slavery, post-Civil Rights African American artists and writers, such as Annette Gordon-Reed, Bill T. Jones, Randall Robinson, and Kara Walker, strategically re-imagine slavery to challenge the ongoing exclusion of African Americans from America's civic myths and to model a racially democratic future. In 2010, she co-edited the Callaloo: A Journal of African Diaspora Arts and Letters Special Issue on Ethiopia and her work has appeared in Callaloo, Novel, Research in African Literatures, Savoring the Salt: The Legacy of Toni Cade Bambara, Violence in the Lives of Black Women: Battered, Black, and Blue, and Women's Review of Books. In 2011, she wrote the liner notes for the Grammy-award winning album, Wake Up! by John Legend and the The Roots. She is currently working on The World Nina Simone Made: The Story of a Sonic Radical.
