Racial justice movement in the digital era

How prevalent are racist groups on Facebook? How could the Black Lives Matter movement connect and mobilize a huge number of actors and spread their messages throughout the digital space? In a project with my amazing collaborator, Ashely Lee at Stanford, I’m investigating the social dynamics of the BLM movement and its counter-movements, such as White Lives Matter and All Lives Matter, that attempted to denigrate and disrupt the movement for racial justice.
