I want to let you know what a pleasure it was to read the article in the March 24 issue about Dr. Taylor and all he has done for minority and cultural affairs within ASHA. I am a doctoral student at Nova Southeastern University working towards my SLPD and I am conducting my dissertation on the conflict resolution tactics of African American speech-language pathology supervisors. Subsequently, I needed to contact ASHA for demographic information and assistance in disseminating surveys to African American members and I was so happy to find that there was a director of minority affairs in place. Then, I read the recent issue and found out about Dr. Taylor's activism and how it played a large role in the establishment of such a position.
I would like to extend a huge thank you for educating the membership on the influence that a small group can have. I am inspired to encourage more minorities to join our wonderful field and to continue on to the doctoral level. Thanks again for telling this story.
