Black people have shaped and curated what we have come to know as American culture. From music to fashion, academia, politics and pop culture it all begins and ends with Black people leading the way. The same can be said about what we know of Internet culture today. Join us for a special screening of That’s So Black, a pop culture video series produced by MediaJustice about how Black people have created, shaped, and nourished Internet culture.
