Dr. Danielle N. Boaz named ADRSA Director of Public Ed

The ADRSA is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Danielle N. Boaz as our Director of Public Education. In this role, she will spearhead initiatives supporting our mission of supporting scholarship in Africana Religions, and bringing underrepresented voices to the fore by creating and aggregative resources to more actively engage the public.

Dr. Boaz is Associate Professor of Africana Studies at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. She is the founder of the International Commission to Combat Religious Racism (ICCRR) and the author of Banning Black Gods: Law and Religions of the African Diaspora and of the recently released Voodoo: The History of a Racial Slur. She has been an active member of ADRSA since 2018 and was host convener for our 2023 conference held at UNC, Charlotte.

Of her appointment as DPE Danielle says:

“I am delighted to be joining the ADRSA as the Director of Public Education. For those who don’t know me, I work on discrimination and violence against Africana religious communities. As the Director of Public Education, I plan to generate open access (free) materials that will help educate the public about our religions and combat some of the widespread myths and misconceptions.” 

Danielle’s first act as our DPE is the creation and dissemination of the ADRSA Publication Education Survey, a survey aimed at helping us understand what types of resources will be most helpful for you, our community of educators, scholars and practitioners. Please take a moment to complete this two-question survey, which should take 5 minutes or less, and we look forward to sharing more resources with you as we move forward together.

Welcome, Danielle!
