The Dr. Vibe Show

Shanita Hubbard is a student of motherhood, passionate social justice advocate, and writer.

From working as a therapist for youth on probation, operating job readiness programs for formally incarcerated adults, directing youth alternative-to-incarceration programs, grant writing, and now to a Criminal Justice Ethics Professor, Shanita continues to find creative ways to combat social injustice. Her creativity is also displayed via writing. Her writing is featured in The Root, EBONY Magazine, Abernathy Magazine, The Huffington Post and other publications.
