Ezekiel Joubert III is an educator, community-engaged scholar, and creative writer. As faculty of Educational Foundations in the Division of Advanced and Applied Studies at California State University-Los Angeles, his teaching explores theories, methods, and politics that undergird the psychological foundations of education and qualitative research methods in education. His scholarly interests focus on the intersections of racial capitalism and Black education, the political economy of student movement, the history of educational inequality in Black rural communities near Metro Detroit and in the Midwest, and Black organic educational intellectual thought and activism. He is currently an American Communities Program Fellow, where his work centers Black migration and education in Los Angeles. Additionally, he writes personal narrative essays and is working on a collection of speculative poems and short stories on teaching and learning in marginalized communities.
