About me

Current Position - Assistant Professor of Kinesiology in Physical Education Teacher Education at Towson University.

Mission statement – To advocate for health and social justice to improve the quality of life for all.

Bio - Dr. Blackshear is living her dream as an educator and researcher.  A native of Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Blackshear established a love for health and physical activity at an early age by participating in quality health and physical education programs during  her elementary years - a trend that continued throughout her secondary  educational experiences.  

Passionate  about helping young people excel in health, physical activity, and education, the quest for 'equity for all' is a  mantra that guides Dr. Blackshear in making her mark to address current health, physical activity and educational inequities.

Dr. Blackshear has made a global impact by working  around the world to improve the quality of life for others. Recognizing the discouraging health statistics in the United States, particularly among females and people of color, Dr. Blackshear focuses on research that confronts health and physical activity disparities, and inequities in education that disproportionately affect Black women.
