“Using her considerable teaching skill and passion for history, Magwood creates accessible resources that open up conversations for learning about racism that are incredibly impactful.”

– Katy Swalwell, Ph.D., Lead Equity Specialist at Equity Literacy Institute and co-author of Fix Injustice Not Kid

“Our country desperately needs Ayo Magwood’s brilliant, accessible, deeply-researched, solutions-focused presentations on structural racism. At a time when these issues have become polarizing and controversial, Ayo shows us a way to work together towards a more equitable society for all.”

  – Zoe Weil, President of the Institute for Humane Education

“Ayo Magwood is brilliant; the way she synthesizes and delivers data in a compelling way is incredible! I’ve experienced many different DEI curricula and they pale in comparison to hers. She was able to modify the curriculum to address some health issues and our specific geographic area, making it pertinent to healthcare providers.”

– Dr. Rasheeda Monroe M.D., FAAP, Physician & Lead health equity scholar, WakeMed Health & Hospitals

“I continue to be astounded at the way Ayo is able to identify the deeper, underlying dynamics and root causes of her clients’ challenges. The combination of this insight and her knowledge of behavioral principles make her an inimitable problem-solver. She uses data to dismantle misconceptions and provides a framework of evidence-based strategies. She is a gift to the field!”

– Brigid Moriarty-Guerrero, Partner, Longview Education

“You have an amazing ability to synthesize and explain loads of really complex and vital history *and* show how it shapes all our lives right now. I can’t thank you enough for breaking this all down for us in such a compelling way!”

– Tom Guglielmo, historian and author of White on Arrival and Divisions

“Too many educational institutions engage in “call out” antiracist strategies that shut down dialogue and exacerbate racist thinking. In contrast, Magwood’s seminars enable people of different races to learn and talk about racism without blaming each other for the past. Learning how structural racism—rather than individual racists—is responsible for racial inequity today, enables white people to understand that while they didn’t personally create these systems, they are responsible for deconstructing them.”

– Lou Bernieri, English instructor and Director of Andover Bread Loaf, Phillips Academy
