Smith's research is centered on Black adolescents' sociopolitical development in school and after-school program contexts. He is affiliated with the Youth-Nex Center. His work examines the ways in which Black adolescents recognize, analyze, and respond to oppression (e.g., racism, sexism, classism) in their environment. Additionally, his work employs an intersectional approach to explore Black adolescent school experiences across racial, class, and gender identities. For example, his current work examines the ways in which Black boys from middle class backgrounds make meaning of their school environment, their experiences of racial discrimination in school, and their relationships with peers.
