    J.T. Snipes, Ph.D is Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Prior to his faculty appointment he worked for over 12 years in higher education administration. Currently, his research interest focuses on religion and spirituality in higher education, African American collegiate students, and critical race theory in education. He recently completed his award-winning dissertation entitled, “Ain’t I Black too: Counterstories of Black Atheist in College.” It explores the narratives of secular African American students in college. His latest edited volume Remixed and Reimagined: Innovations in Religion, Spirituality, and (Inter)Faith in Higher Education invites readers to rethink religious scholarship and practice in higher education and student affairs.

    Dr. Wilson Kwamogi Okello is a poet who believes in the power of creative expression as a method to generate critical self-reflection, inspire confidence, and achieve agency. Dr. Okello is an assistant professor in the Watson College of Education at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Bridging the artist-scholar divide, Dr. Okello is an interdisciplinary scholar who draws on theories of Blackness and Black feminist theories to think about knowledge production and student/early adult development, particularly, the relationship between history, the body, and epistemology in and beyond educational spaces. He is also concerned with how theories of Blackness and Black feminist theories might reconfigure understandings of racialized stress and trauma, qualitative inquiry, critical masculinities, and curriculum and pedagogy. He has delivered over 100 invited keynotes/lectures/presentations, from Rhode Island to California. Dr. Okello earned his Ph.D. from Miami University; his master’s degree is from the University of Rhode Island, and he holds a bachelor’s degree from Youngstown State University. He is the recipient of the University of Rhode Island’s Distinguished Alumni Rising Star Award, the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators’ (NASPA) Outstanding Professional Award, Youngstown State University’s Outstanding Alumni Award, and he was named a 2022 Emerging Scholar by the American College Personnel Association.
