Opening Plenary Discussion: Justice Communications and Mainstream Media Coverage of Communities of Color

9:30m am – 11:00 am

2013 is the 50th anniversary of the Martin Luther King’s March in Washington yet mainstream media continue to largely ignore glaring racial and structural inequalities, particularly as they relate to housing, education, and the economy.

  • How can we challenge this imbalanced and inaccurate coverage?
  • What are some examples of creative strategies to highlight marginalized voices and challenge the prevailing mainstream narrative?

Invited panelists will share insights, case studies, and lead a plenary discussion on justice communications and mainstream coverage of issues affecting communities of color.

Panelists:

Sarah J. Jackson, Northeastern University
Lydia Lowe, Chinese Progressive Association
Curdina Hill, City Life/Vida Urbana
Amaad Rivera, Sen. Markey’s Office
Reggie Williams, Press Pass TV

Moderator: Yawu Miller, Bay State Banner
