Dr. Watkins-Dickerson’s work in womanist rhetorical theory brings a much-needed focus to the intersections of religion, race, and gender. Not only has she served as a research assistant for the Henry McNeal Turner Project, which is a digital humanities project curating the rhetoric of this AME bishop, military chaplain, and leader, her teaching and research presentations not only evidence a keen ability to articulate the particularities of women and African American communication studies. While evaluating her instruction, I have witnessed her passion to engage student’s critical thinking skills; encourage them to think civically; and lesson plan effectively.
