Black Teacher Project
Director
Micia Mosely, a comedian and educator who earned her Ph.D. in education from U.C. Berkeley, keeps audiences learning and laughing in a variety of contexts and venues. Mosely’s one-woman show, Where My Girls At? (an off-Broadway comedy about Black lesbians), was nominated for a New York Innovative Theatre Award (Best Solo Performance). Currently, she performs her brand of social-justice stand-up comedy across the country.

She began her career teaching high school social studies in San Francisco and went on to work as a coach with the National Equity Project and as a national training specialist with the Posse Foundation. Mosely's research and practice focuses on equity, race, and urban education. She stays connected to teaching as lecturer at UMass Boston and an induction mentor for the residency program at Teachers College, Columbia University. Mosely spends most of her time as the founding executive director of the Black Teacher Project, an organization committed to recruiting, developing, and sustaining Black teachers for schools in the United States.
