BIOGRAPHY

Raygine DiAquoi's research is grounded in Critical Race Theory. A sociologist of education, her work focuses on the educational experiences of marginalized children, racism over the life course, and racial socialization.

A former editor of the Harvard Educational Review, Dr. DiAquoi has written about the experiences of students of color in elite educational spaces, Afrocentric education, and the competencies required of African American students and their families.

Dr. DiAquoi teaches Qualitative Research Methods at the graduate level and has served as a consultant to various communities and organizations, including Hartford Public Schools District, Harvard University, and the New York City Department of Education.

She is a Public Voices fellow with The OpEd Project.
