Brooke Taylor is a Black, queer, non-binary, social justice advocate and scholar who has dedicated their life to serving marginalized communities. Brooke is a proud Bison (Howard), Panther (VUU), and Ram (VCU) alum. With an undergraduate degree in Political Science and an expansive graduate-level theological education, they often view the world through a culturally diverse theo-political lens. Brooke is unapologetically committed to BIPOC and QTPOC communities through their scholarly and community work.
Brooke believes that everyone has the potential to be a scholar and has a deep passion to bridge the gap between academia and non-traditional student populations. Proudly bi-vocational, they have facilitated hundreds of trainings, conversations, and classes within various demographic groups and has worked directly with persons facing incarceration, discrimination, homelessness, and poverty.
Calling Richmond home for nearly a decade, Brooke is passionate about creating inclusive spaces for BIPOC folks and is committed to breaking down barriers within the community. When not advocating for change, Brooke can often be found with their loving partner and mischievous cat, Chimichurri.
