Kimberly's work examines how Black experience in the Soviet Union shaped Black identity, and how the presence of people of color shaped ideas and understandings of race, ethnicity, and nationality policy in the Soviet Union and post-Soviet space. 

Her public writing analyzes the linkages of race, foreign policy, and culture in the United States, Russia, and Ukraine.
