About Diaspora Hypertext, the Blog

Diaspora Hypertext, the Blog is a showcase and workspace belonging to Jessica Marie Johnson (@jmjafrx). I’m a black feminist/radical woman of color digital humanist and media maker interested in ways images and texts created in difficult pasts resonate across digital and social media. I’m invested in researching, teaching, discussing and disseminating Atlantic African diaspora history, life and culture across multiple platforms. My praxis is anti-oppression, feminist and social justice oriented. I’m the founder and editor of African Diaspora, Ph.D. and Assistant Professor of History at Michigan State UniversityThis blog works in conjunction with the Codex, a social media triptych (#ADPhD, Diaspora Hypertext, and Seeing Dark Matter) processing Atlantic slavery through application, code, and screen.
