The Bombastic Brilliance of Black Twitter II

In this dual conversation between an American and Africana Studies Scholar, Digital Strategist and upcoming author of "The Bombastic Brilliance of Black Twitter," Dr. Kimberly C. Ellis aka @DrGoddess, and Journalist / Journalism Educator, @MeredithClark, who completed her dissertation on "Black Twitter," in Fall 2014, a serious, fun and focused interrogation of the arc of Black Twitter will occur. While both panelists have an academic background, they each bring a history of cultural criticism as well as journalistic integrity, digital engagement and social media expertise to the fore. They will discuss the evolution of "Black Twitter," since 2009, the mainstream media's obsession since 2012, the various ways in which the community has been truncated and misrepresented, as well as the longstanding tradition of forthright Black assertion in public spaces, including #TrayvonMartin, #Ferguson, #ICantBreathe and #BlackLivesMatter, #Selma and #Selma2Ferguson.
