Ebony Terrell Shockley studies underrepresented groups and their teachers in STEM, literacy, and exceptional education contexts. Her research aims to center the voices of marginalized learners, primarily those who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and their families, highlighting and affirming the cultural, ancestral, linguistic, scientific, and historically-divergent knowledge profiles that are significantly reflected and respected in their homes more frequently than their classrooms. Shockley investigates, leads, and co-facilitates this work primarily in the United States and Cuba.
