Bio: LeRhonda Manigault-Bryant

Whether investigating practices of specific communities, exploring cultural production at the popular level, considering the impact of new technologies, or creating documentary shorts, critical to Dr. Manigault-Bryant’s research and teaching are explorations of how Black women throughout the Diaspora engage religion and spirituality to navigate the contours of life. Her research straddles the disciplines of religion, anthropology, art, music, and media.

Dr. Manigault-Bryant serves as the Director of the Sonja Haynes Stone Director for Black Culture and History. A proud native of Moncks Corner, South Carolina, she wholly and critically grapples with the profound questions that inform our understandings of gender, race, culture, and religious expression. She navigates the academy as a scholar-artist, and actively merges her life as an intellectual, musician and filmmaker, including especially her work as founder of ConjureGirlBlue Productions, a small media company specializing in nonfiction storytelling.
