2019 Recipient

James L. Moore III
The Ohio State University

Dr. James L. Moore III is vice provost for diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer at The Ohio State University and EHE Distinguished Professor of Urban Education in the College of Education and Human Ecology. Across his career, he has made significant contributions to scholarship, policy, and practice in gifted education, school counseling, urban education, multicultural education/counseling, and STEM education. As director of the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the African American Male, the first-of-its-kind center focused on Black males’ educational development, Moore has worked with scholars, universities, school districts, policy makers, and nonprofits to help build the capacity for success for Black males nationally and globally.

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the 40th anniversary of the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the 30th anniversary of the Lau v. Nichols decision, the Social Justice Action Committee launches a new award—the Social Justice in Education Award—and invites nominations of individuals who have advanced social justice through education research. The recipient of the award should exemplify the goal of linking education research to social justice.
