He currently serves as the Graduate Assistant and Project Coordinator for The Cincinnati Project. His current research interests include race, resistance, and exploring how and why have people created space to organize Black people for leisure. Webb ’s thesis research focuses on how parents’ from different backgrounds justify their children’s involvement in extra-curricular activities, and why this is an important part of the socialization process for these parents. Following calls to conduct research on how Black people transform oppressive spaces in cities into sites for Black joy and celebration, in his dissertation he examines how and why Black Millennials create and organize for leisure in white spaces. Webb focuses on Black millennials’ agency in negotiating and navigating urban spaces even in the midst of ongoing anti-Blackness, discrimination, racism, and gentrification.
