Dr. Kimya Nuru Dennis is an activist, sociologist and criminologist, educator, and researcher. As founder of 365 Diversity, Dr. Dennis helps change policies and practices, curriculum and courses, and evaluations and assessments for K-12 schools, colleges and universities, businesses, human resources offices, for-profit and non-profit organizations, and communities. Emphasis is placed on supporting and protecting people with underserved and minoritized identities and experiences. A range of demographics and cultures captured include race and ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, language and communication, mental health, physical health, self-harm and suicide, disability, reproductive health and freedom, and sexual health and freedom. In this conversation Dr. Kimya shares what it truly means to be an activist, why it’s important to go beyond the learning we do in our K-12 curriculums and why Black Pan African people need to all come together for change.
