Abstract

The Black Lives Matter movement shifts the narrative about how social media and technology affect change in people’s lives on and offline. There is a gap in existing educational research and theory as regards the intersection of race, gender, theological ethics, and technology especially in the context of social justice issues within digital spaces. This article aims to define and discuss the creation of a techno-womanist framework that can be used to understand social justice issues and challenges that occur both in the digital space as well as within and around technology. Through the use of qualitative research methods, like grounded theory and document analysis, a socio-political event that occurred in the technospace is examined. Viewing this event through a techno-womanist lens, the authors provide critical reflections and analysis of this recent instance of political unrest and its hashtag movement for social justice.
