Dr. E. (née Elaine Richardson)an Ohio State University professor turned recording artist, has risen far beyond the streets she once walked and worked as a teenage victim of sex trafficking. Now with "Mutha Werk," the new single from her upcoming autobiographical album, "Songs for the Struggle," and "Boy, I'm Feelin' You", a song on the soundtrack of Fox's hottest new show, "STAR," starring Queen Latifah, Dr. E continues to beat the odds.  

Today, Dr. E is a professor of Literacy Studies, in the Department of Teaching and Learning at The Ohio State University. She received her B.A. and M.A. from Cleveland State University, and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University. Dr. E taught for two years at the University of Minnesota, and for nine years at Penn State University. She has written or co-authored five academic books and detailed her life's travails in her memoir, "PHD to Ph.D.: How Education Saved My LiFe" on New City Community Press. She has also produced, performed and toured her one-woman play, which was adapted from her book by Dr. Mary Weems.
