Category: Accolades

Hillyer College's Rebecca M. Townsend published "Deval Patrick on the Power of Rhetoric" in the Howard Journal of Communications. The essay analyzes Patrick's first primary campaign rhetoric, including his "just words" speech, arguing that what emerged was his theory of how good rhetoric should work. Voters elected Patrick as Massachusetts' governor, the first African American to be elected to the seat, and the fourth in the United States.
