10:30am to 11:30am
Once upon a time, the “black community” was a physical place. Then along came integration and the physical definition was lifted as individuals dispersed to where ever their means could carry them. The dispersion carried advantages and disadvantages. This session explores how the digital landscape has impacted the nature of “community” making it possible to gain strength in numbers virtually as well as mask race when deemed necessary. The panel will explore the impact on culture and commerce from three perspectives: academic, corporate and social.
In this panel, we seek to bridge the divide between what is Black and what is Digital from different perspectives. Our panelists have spent decades working on various aspects of the Black Experience including technology, public health, consumption, religion, and socialization. Moreover, each of these experts have migrated their research, teaching, and consulting to the Digital space as it has become more prominent in the everyday lives of people kissed by nature’s sun.
