WHO IS SHANITA HUBBARD?

Shanita Hubbard is an acclaimed writer, a journalism instructor at the University of Toronto, chair of the Freelance Taskforce for the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Soros Fellow, and author of the upcoming book “Ride or Die: A Feminist Manifesto For The Well-Being of Black Women.”

 

In 2020 she was awarded a prestigious LA Maison Baldwin Writer’s Residency Fellowship. The fellowship is awarded to Black emerging writers who “are working in the spirit of James Baldwin.” This is a fitting honor considering Hubbard uses her work to provoke meaningful change for historically marginalized communities.

“Fighting for social justice is part of who I am. Sometimes this “fight” comes in the form of empowering an audience with the information. Discussing ways to bring positive social change will always be a priority for me.”
