“Border Crossing Brothas” Devotional

Dr. Ty-Ron Douglas

Dr. Ty-Ron Douglas is an Associate Professor in the Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis Department at the University of Missouri, Executive Director of So Amazing Life Today, Inc and lead (lay) pastor of Salt City Church. His research explores the intersections between identity, leadership, and education, with an emphasis on Black masculinity, spirituality, and community-based spaces (e.g. barbershops, churches and athletic spaces). The author of three books, including the award-winning Border Crossing Brothas: Black Males Navigating Race, Place and Complex Space (See book trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oLZBel6vxs) and the recipient of a NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant to study Black male student athletes, Dr. Douglas’ work has also appeared in outlets such as The Urban Review, Educational Studies, Teachers College Record, and Race, Ethnicity, and Education.

But Dr. Ty is not your typical professor or pastor. Long before his professional accomplishments, his then teenage mother nearly aborted him while she was student at Oakwood; however, while at the abortion clinic, she felt him move for the first time…a flutter in her stomach and knew she couldn’t do it! 40 years later, he has earned a doctorate and his mother, a licensed counselor and speaker, is now pursing her doctorate! These experiences undergird Dr. Ty’s mission and passion as a border-crossing brotha-scholar— a sought-after speaker, innovative communicator, educational expert, motivator, song writer and community leader who is mobilizing his MEsearch, Research, and WEsearch to engage in FREEsearch. His commitment to education, underserved communities and leadership development has led him to develop the Salt Fellows program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyapyRLJmW0 and the Annual Salt City Back to School Explosion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZlW7qmpY7c).

He is happily married to Bobbie Douglas and they are co-authors of So Amazing…Her Story: Secrets to Finding and Keeping a Great Man. Dr. Ty and Bobbie have been blessed with two fun-loving and talented sons.
