The Narrative of Digital Black Stories
William Jackson #MyQuestToTeach

Social Media, an age of digital communities, communication
and collaboration. Changing the way people will communicate
for generations to come.
Broadcasting on a digital platform that can expand the human
voice. The ability to enhance activism that influences the human
mind and human behaviors.

People of color can expand their voices in so many ways that the
Gutenburg Press could not even begin to match. Parchment,
paper and publication in cyberspace expands and quantifies
the ability to connect with people of like or even different cultures.
From traditional Blogs to Video blogs, from Podcasts to Microblogs,
from Instagram to Facebook. This is not the end there are Apps
and digital platforms that are contributors.
Hashtags create a game changer in the evolution of Social Media,
influencing how people see the world and how people of color
can be perceived online.

The narrative of people of color and their stories can change
with a photo, a video, and a hashtag strategically placed.
My narrative is being followed by students attending my
elementary school and in higher education. It is important to
me about their perceptions and the perceptions that I create
with my digital signature. 
Their perception and that of their parents do matter because
my content defines their perception.
The perceptions of my profession as a teacher, community
activist, volunteer, mentor, man, African American male and
even that of a father are influenced.

Narratives are capable of being changed, but perceptions are
delicate. Content creators understand the value of perception,
make sure it is positive and productive because first impressions
and first perceptions are important.
Social Media only shows one part of a person, in our age of
digital engagement what is posted will never go away. The
Narrative of Black stories can be perceived as self-destructive,
culturally destructive and even socially destructive.
Events like Man Up for Health Summit and Prevent Crime In

The Black Community are important events. They set a tone
for education, business, careers and health information.
Churches, youth groups, ministries and any organization that
works with, mentors to and inspires youth, teens and young
adults should be attending events like these, the workshops
provide real and relevant information to help them make rational
and mature decisions.

As a community activist Aida Correa of LoveBuilt Life and I
My Quest To Teach encourage and advocate for education,
proper educational  health care and engagement in the community.
The key is education and learning. Parents help children of all ages
understand that they create the messages society hears on Social
Media. They are judged by their digital voices and content. Change
the perceptions by changing your content.
