Social media has definitely demonstrated it self to be a force for good, whether in politics, entrepreneurship or in promoting social causes. Yet one area appears to be constantly requiring redefinition: personal identity. This talk will explore the ways that social media has given once neglected demographics a voice-and a face while appearing to mask the pain that growing numbers of users endure in trying to asserting their identity. Central to this talk is the issue of Rachael Dolezal, a white American woman who decides to identify as black, wearing typical African hair and taking a West African name-Nkechi.
