Dr. Howard will be discussing his coined theory, Black Sacred Rhetoric; the cultural disconnection between many African Americans today regarding rich, traditional styles of oral delivery versus modernized versions influenced by Popular Culture; and how more African Americans in the field of teaching, preaching, and delivering can merge the gap between current divides within the discourse.
