Alicia Fontnette is an assistant professor of
Africana Studies at the University of Delaware and a scholar-activist
who is dedicated to the freedom and liberation of Black and Brown people
throughout the Diaspora. She believes that her responsibility is to
help students encounter breakthroughs in thinking and acting in the
interest of social justice.
Dr. Fontnette’s pedagogical practice is
rooted in the decolonization and humanization of all her students. In
2012, Dr. Fontnette became a board member for the National Council for
Black Studies and currently serves as its membership chairperson. From
2012-2016, Dr. Fontnette held positions in both the African Diaspora and
the World Department and English Department at Spelman College.
However, it was during her tenure in K-12 that Dr. Fontnette’s
instructional practices developed into an art that ensured student
success. Students seeing themselves in the curriculum, being a part of
the curriculum building process, having a space for their voices, and
the grounding of classes in discourse and reflection has proven to be
models that Dr. Fontnette believes are a necessity for learning, not
only in K-12, but also the collegiate level. In 2021, Dr. Fontnette
created Transformative Educational Coaching, L.L.C. to assist college
professors with transitioning from a lecture style classroom to one of
student dialogue and discourse.
Dr. Fontnette’s research interests include Black
women and their development in America, the impact of Hurricane Katrina
on Black women in New Orleans, and the use of Black women’s voices in
literature as tools for liberation. More recently, Dr. Fontnette’s
research endeavors have focused on freedom and liberatory practices in
K-12 education in America and the decolonization of oppressive practices
in the classroom.
