#BBQBecky to #MeToo: Space, Place, and Race in Criminal Justice
From #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter to #SayHerName and #MeToo hashtags, social media activism has become a powerful tool in a call for justice in the criminal justice system. In this gender plays an intriguing role. On the one hand, society continues its long history of protecting and defending White women (the #BBQBecky's of the world) in certain spaces while denying, ignoring and erasing the experience of women of color in other spaces. This talk will explore how space, place, and race converge and continue the denial of the humanity of women of color in society.

She is the founding chair (Associate Professor) of the Department of Criminal Justice at Azusa Pacific University.
