Facilitation, Instruction and Teaching
Shemariah identifies as an educator, an activist and an organizer. She is an interdisciplinary scholar with expert knowledge and skills to develop, implement, facilitate and evaluate curricula that promote institutional equity, communication, and access for traditionally marginalized students and families. As the Founder and Lead Experience Curator for Sankofa Circle Studios, Shemariah engages diverse communities in a variety of ways with one goal: to lift as you climb. As a master teacher and facilitator, she consults with a myriad of education-based organizations around issues of process improvement with a goal of moving organizations from operational efficiency to excellence. Currently a doctoral candidate in the college of education at Northeastern University, her dissertation focuses on mothering in the wake of #BlackLivesMatter. As an auto/ethnographic researcher and author, her most recent publication, Ruminations From A #BlackMommyActivist focuses on the joy, trauma and drama of raising two Black sons in today’s rapidly changing global society.
Shemariah and her team has assisted us over many years in building a strong and sustainable volunteer program. Handling all volunteer registration, assignments, training and on-site management, they have built and still operate a professional volunteer program that is essential to the operation of our national conference.

WORDS TO BE BY
"I raise up my voice, not to shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...none of us can succeed when some of us are held back."
