Ebony Weekend – day 1

 

Hey all!

Friday night there was a speaker named Dr. Sherri Williams. She talked about the social media and its bias toward showing stereotypes. On a lot of reality television shows, us viewers will only see things like the “Angry Black Woman” or “Sassy Latina.” The people on these shows are in fact very normal and respectable pushed toward their limit and blow up and that is all we get to see on tv.

She was an excellent speaker and I hope to hear from her again one day!
