Matthew Kincaid a former New Orleans-based social studies teacher and school administrator is now the founder, CEO, and chief consulting officer of Overcoming Racism, a consulting firm that provides schools and organizations nationwide with “high-impact race and equity professional development and consultation. 

Kincaid is building Overcoming Racism out of the urgency of the problem that we face. We don’t have the luxury to lose generations of Black brilliance to systems and structures designed to exploit black labor. Overcoming Racism is being built into an organization that can have a significant impact on the eventual eradication of racism from our systems and institutions.

It is critical that anti-racist policies are created for people to exist in rather than believing that racism can be eliminated simply by hiring nice people.
