As racism and the treatment of people of color in and out of newsrooms has surged to the forefront of conversations, against the backdrop of a pandemic that disproportionately impacts people of color, journalists face many questions: When do ‘objectivity’ and ‘neutrality’ mask inequity? How do journalists move from covering protests to systemically telling stories that root out racist treatment in health care, education and other social spheres? And how can journalists practice antiracism in their everyday work?
Registration now for this program, which will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, 2020.
Panelists will explore and help us understand:
- How the default frame of journalism/journalists is not neutral or objective
- How to reframe the way journalism works so it’s actively antiracist
- How to broaden reach and audience by working more inclusively with community
