In 2015, I co-founded the Irate 8 in response to the shooting death of Samuel Dubose by a University of Cincinnati's police officer. The Irate 8 is a highly acclaimed, award-winning student activist movement that has been used as a template across the country and praised by the University of Cincinnati's faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Trustees. It has been featured in over 30 publications locally, nationally, and internationally. View that list of publications by clicking here. The movement has yielded millions of dollars in scholarships for minorities, the renovation of our African American Cultural and Resource Center, the formation of inclusive classroom curriculum, new faculty and staff hires, increased funding for programs and initiatives related to black student success, and a hiring process that evaluates each candidate's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
