YMCA Friday Forum Series - Spring 2021: The Digital Mis(shaping) of the World 

 

March 5th  | "The Intersection of Black Culture and Technology"

 

Speaker: Lamont Holden, TheLetterLBeats

 

Description: In the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, many of us are using technology more than ever before. The world of technology opens many doors for global connection, but does it also come with consequences? With growing digital interactions, there is a greater need to more deeply understand the intersections between technology and race, class, privacy, education, faith and public health. How these intersections impact our everyday experiences, as well as what might happen within these intersections looking forward, are critical for us to consider. Join us as we take a look into how technology is not only shaping but also misshaping our world.
