Race and the Digital: Racial Formation and 21st Century Technologies

Broader Divide

I didn't consider the digital divide to be inclusive of technical careers. That definitely opens up the realm for more possibilities of what the digital divide may be.

On a personal level, I never really payed too much attention to how many black women were going into such technical fields. I don’t feel as if there were that many… in fact growing up in the schools I went to (High Desert, SoCal); there was definitely an absence of positive ethnic leaders in technological fields. I know they exist, I don’t contest that, but on what level?

Think hard…but was there a significant amount of minority teachers in your upbringing that were in these technical fields (STEM essentially)?

Good Blog.
