Tiffany D. Pogue, Ph.D.

Scholar. Educator. Literacy Specialist. Activist.

Tiffany D. Pogue is a graduate of the Division of Educational Studies, Emory University. Her work lies in the critical space between literacy, history, education, cultural anthropology, and Africana Studies. Dr. Pogue’s scholarly outlook is guided by the single, undergirding question: “How have Black people, across time and space, transmitted their knowledge to others?”. Ultimately, this is a question about how education has worked successfully in spaces not usually considered by educational researchers. Specifically, Pogue explores the roles of education, literacy, and pedagogy in community institutions including spiritual families, Hip Hop Based Education classrooms, and rites-of-passage programs. To bridge the gap between theory and practice, Pogue works with teachers, administrators, and others to translate her theoretical findings into information and curricula that can be used in the traditional school classroom. She also conducts workshops, seminars, and trainings for others interested in exploring pedagogical practices not commonly considered in teacher education programs. Dr. Pogue wishes for her work to directly affect students who find traditional school culturally irrelevant and uncomfortable. Her literacy outlooks involve authentic instruction where learning serves a real purpose beyond testing. At the same time, she demands excellence of her students in ways that improve their performance on these kinds of measures.
