Like his predecessor, David Featherman, James was a strong supporter of and friend to the CSSR. In 2010, James flew from the USA to Cape Town to participate in the second institutional review of the CSSR. James himself was a pioneer in quantitative research into the lives of black Americans, including on their migration within the USA or from other parts of the world (including the Caribbean) to the USA.
