He was a dissertation fellow at the University of California-Santa Barbara Black Studies Department and was awarded the inaugural Julian Pleasants Visiting Scholar Grant at the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at the University of Florida.

An associate professor in the Department of History at Florida Atlantic University, White is the author of The Challenge of Blackness: The Institute of the Black World and Political Activism in the 1970s. He is a scholar of modern black history, sports history and intellectual history.
