My name is Brianni Nelson. I completed my Bachelors in English with a focus in the African Diaspora at the University of Missouri: Columbia. I currently reside in Dallas, TX and am a Masters candidate in the Emerging Media and Communication program at the University of Texas at Dallas. The Internet has afforded me a great medium to theorize on issues of race and class in the digital space and offer new solutions on limiting gaps in access and expression for underrepresented groups. I particularly enjoy the work of Lisa Nakamura, Tim Wise, and Jessie Daniels. My goal is not to imitate or undercut their writing, but ask additional questions and begin to carve out a space where race is discussed academically, passionately, and creatively on the Internet.
