Jenean McGee, originally from Elk Grove, California recently received her M.A. from the University of Massachusetts Boston in American Studies. At the University of Massachusetts Boston McGee’s studies focused on African American popular culture.

In the Comparative Ethnic Studies program at the University of Colorado Boulder McGee intends to examine how women of the African diaspora engage with social media platforms such as YouTube, and Instagram.
