A&S Professor of Communication, Ronald L. Jackson II, has been named the 2021 recipient of the Orlando L. Taylor Distinguished Scholarship Award in Africana Communication from the National Communication Association (NCA).
This award, the only one in the entire field of communication designed to honor a scholar who has shown dedication and commitment in the field of African American and African Diaspora communication, is named for the first Black president of the NCA, Orlando L. Taylor.
“Given that I have worked arduously to build a program of research over the last 26 years that has offered well-cited foundational texts for the study of African American communication, this is one of the most meaningful awards in my career,” Jackson said.
