Justin T. Stewart

Mr. Stewart is a Risk Management consultant in financial services, a faculty career coach at Allen Ivy Prep Consulting, and former entertainment journalist. He earned his B.A. in journalism from Clark Atlanta University and is a native of Boston, MA. He currently resides in Atlanta, GA where he was recently highlighted in Voyage ATL Magazine as part of ATL’s Most Inspiring Stories.

Since his days as an adolescent, Justin has gravitated towards literature, transforming into a passion to become a storyteller. Working in industries such as higher education, career services and corporate
banking, these experiences, including being a member of the BOLD (Black Organizers, Leaders, and Doers) network has exposed him to diverse individuals, cultures and perspectives, enabling him to use his
platforms to share the stories of those he has encountered. He has used his pen to highlight artists, business owners and non-profit organizations on local and national levels. Alongside his colleague Dr.
Antija Allen, We’re Not OK: Black Faculty Experiences and Higher Education Strategies, their first collaborative publication through Cambridge University Press, is an opportunity to shine a light on racial
disparities, continue conversations and create action that can lead to a meaningful and progressive shift in some of the unique challenges for Black faculty, and Black professionals, that work within predominantly
white spaces.


Since the release of the book, he has presented at institutions including Columbia University, North Hennepin Community College, Pellissippi State Community College and the California
Placement Association and been featured on podcasts including Black Mental Matters, In the Margins and Mental Talk for book talks and workshops to discuss issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion and mental health. The title is currently featured at the bookstores of Emory University, Georgia Tech, Temple, Columbia University and Harvard.
