DR. TONIESHA L. TAYLOR BIO

SCHOLAR. RESEARCHER. WRITIER

One of my favorite quotes from author and scholar Zora Neale Hurston is, "research is formalized curiosity". I have always been curious. I love asking and answering questions. Some of the questions I'm asking are "How are Black women engaging womanist rhetoric and social justice?" "How are Digital Humanities and Afrofuturism linked?" "Do people really try to live without coffee?"
