Moving From ‘Woke’ To Working For Black Futures | Della Mosley | TEDxUF

How do we turn our chants of “Black Lives Matter” into a reality? In this talk, Dr. Della V. Mosley answers this question by showing us how we can move past being “woke” and towards actively fighting for Black survival, wellness, and ultimately, liberation. Dr. Della V. Mosley is a Black, queer, feminist, scholar, activist, and healer committed to liberation. Today, she is an Assistant Professor in the American Psychological Association accredited Counseling Psychology Program in the Psychology Department at UF. She leads the Wellness, Equity, Love, Liberation, and Sexuality (WELLS) Healing and Research Collective and co-founded the Academics for Black Survival and Wellness (#Academics4BlackLives). Dr. Della’s research focuses on facilitating the wellness of Black and/or queer and transgender People of Color and has been published in top-tier journals. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
