Assistant Professor Dr. Kishonna Gray quoted in Chicago Tribune

In an article from the Chicago Tribune, Kishonna Gray, UIC assistant professor of communication and gender and women’s studies, addresses a number of topics related to the different criticisms and anxiety that black and nonblack people may experience when posting on social media about anti-racist movements.  Gray doesn’t think there are any unspoken social media rules for different races, but rather there are entirely different spheres and black people critiquing one another’s social media posts within these enclaves shows the diversity within the race.  She also notes that for allies afraid of misspeaking on social media, one option is to amplify and highlight the voices — particularly the black voices – that are expressing what they are feeling.
