Using a social justice framework, we discuss our experiences as faculty members of color working in Library and Information Science (LIS). We present our educational trajectories as well as our professional engagement with teaching, research, and service. This piece contributes to the growing literature on diversity in LIS by articulating African American and Latina perspectives of academia, which are underrepresented demographics in LIS and more generally in higher education in the United States.
