When the American Educational Research Association (AERA) convenes in San Antonio later this month, it will recognize Dr. James L. Moore III with its 2017 Scholars of Color Mid-Career Contribution Award.
Moore, who is the EHE Distinguished Professor of Urban Education and the Executive Director of the Todd Anthony Bell Center National Resource Center on the African American Male at The Ohio State University, is one of the nation’s most recognized education researchers.
The author and editor of more than a dozen books and articles, he is a recognized scholar when it comes to the issues that impact young African American males.
According to AERA officials, the Committee on Scholars of Color in Education Awards recognize scholars in various stages in their careers who have contributed significantly to the understanding of issues that disproportionately affect minority populations, and minority scholars who have made a significant contribution to education research and development.
