 Dr. Christopher House, Communication Studies, has authored an article that appears in the most recent volume of the Southern Communication Journal.  Titled, Crying for Justice: The #BLACKLIVESMATTER Religious Rhetoric of Bishop T.D. Jakes, the essay examines the underlying theological motivations and rhetorical strategies that inform the #BLACKLIVESMATTER (BLM) rhetorical theology of Bishop T.D. Jakes. Using Jakes’ Huffington Post letter, “A Father’s Cry for Justice,” written in response to the 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown, Jr. as a case study, Dr. House argues that by “pulpitizing” mediated spaces, Jakes is modeling a new form of Black church leadership that is supportive of but not central to the BLM movement. This essay demonstrates how Jakes’ rhetorical theology offers religious rhetorical assets that can be used as interventional strategies and models for other religious leaders who seek to move audiences across competing Black sacred/secular dichotomies in support of black lives.

Kristen Pompey, a graduate student in the department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (SLPA), presented her poster with Yvonne Rogalski (SLPA faculty) at the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions in San Antonio Texas. The title of the poster was "Confidence levels of future health professionals communicating with people with aphasia."

Pompey’s research indicates that speech-language pathology students have greater confidence communicating with people with aphasia (an acquired language disorder) than their peers in occupational therapy and physical therapy. Pompey concluded that students should have more opportunities to communicate with people with aphasia while they are in school, as preparation for their careers in the health professions.
