studies and co-founded the Critical Race Collective. Her research
and teaching focus is centered on understanding how racism
reproduces in the United States and globally and how we can
implement anti-racist praxis. She is widely published in academic
journals and has a forthcoming book that applies critical race theory
principles to a global understanding of race and racism with Stanford
Dr. Dorian L. McCoy serves as the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences’

academia. His scholarship is grounded in critical theories including
critical race theory, social reproduction theory, and community
cultural wealth. Dr. McCoy has worked in higher education for 30
years as a student affairs (residential life) and human resources
administrator, and as faculty.
