Terron is the Manager of Community Learning and Engagement at The OSU Urban Arts Space where he oversees the UAS internship program, leads educational initiatives, and establishes community connections and partnerships.

Terron earned his PhD from the department of Arts Administration, Education, and Policy at The Ohio State University in 2019. Recently, he developed a course titled “Black Art in America: Arts and Cultural Policies from Reconstruction to Afrofuturism.” Before attending OSU, he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and Master’s degree in Business Administration from Kentucky State University, a historically Black university.

Terron’s research focuses on the art-historical impact of past Black Arts Movements and the technologies, cultural policies, and arts management processes utilized by Black artists within those movements.  His publication “Black Art Black Rage and Black Lives Matters: The Influence of The Black Arts Movement” in the edited volume Arts Management, Cultural Policy, & the African Diaspora explores these ideas in more depth. Most recently, Terron has led multiple grant-funded projects at OSU that explores ways of combining AI and Afrofuturism to increase arts and tech equity.
