Welcome to Teaching in Color! 

This podcast gives voice to the teaching experiences of faculty of color who've been silenced, marginalized and ignored, their careers destroyed for far too long, most often by the allies presumed to support them. A thriving diverse faculty is essential for a thriving and successful student body, campus and community culture.

Faculty of color - find affirmation, validation and empowerment here. Faculty and administrator allies - take note and then take action. Teaching in Color shares how.

In this two-part series, we are going to talk with my bestie, Rochelle L. Woods about the importance of negotiating for the teaching conditions you need, what gets in the way, and the secret to getting over your fear of the “no”.

Part One

In the first episode of this two-part series, I ask Rochelle to share the reasons people don’t negotiate or advocate for what the teaching conditions they need to remain at and thrive at their universities. She also shares how she helps people get over their reluctance and negotiate for what they need. 

Please check out Rochelle’s website at, and you can contact me if you need support (or maybe to help you pinpoint exactly which teaching conditions you need to negotiate for!) –

I hope you enjoy this series. Please subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.
