EKG Cornerstone Arts Center - Richard Celeste Theater

During this keynote conversation - open to all Colorado College students, alums, faculty, and staff - Dr. Della discusses the need, process, and outcomes of dismantling anti-Black racism. Dr. Della and her team develops a set of introductory questions to facilitate a baseline understanding of anti-Black racism and to introduce Dr. Della’s work. A team member asks Dr. Della these questions unless someone from Colorado College is interested and an appropriate fit. Following this 20-30 minute introduction, students are invited to ask questions and engage in discussion with Dr. Della around the topic of anti-Black racism and Black liberation for 50-60 minutes.

Della Mosley's formal and informal education comes from Bradley University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Kentucky, Duke University, and the countless community organizers and activists, Black feminists, young people, and community members she crossed paths with during her fight for the advancement of marginalized folx.

As a faculty member in the psychology department at the University of Florida, she develops and leads the Wellness, Equity, Love, Liberation, and Sexuality Healing, and Research Collective. Her research, teaching, and service connect to her larger goal of enhancing the psychopolitical wellness of folx who experience oppression simply as a result of their social identities. She focuses on social justice, prevention, holistic wellness, and strengths. In her research, she loves using contextually rich, qualitative, and intersectional approaches to exploring the experiences and promoting the wellness of Black folx and of queer, transgender, and/or gender-expansive People of Color.  

Dr. Mosley co-founded Academics for Black Survival and Wellness (#Academics4BlackLives), is a proud member of the Psychology of Radical Healing Collective, and an American Psychological Association (APA) Minority Fellow.
