Ethnic Media Dialogue: Covering Racial Injustice Protests and COVID-19
June 12, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Amid America’s Reckoning, institutional racial injustice and structural disparities causing the disproportionate impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout, are contexts that ethnic media journalists have been chronicling for their diverse audiences for decades. Their reporting intrinsically cuts across the six Fault Lines of race, class, gender, generation, geography and sexual orientation, and the fissures of religion, ability and politics, in the lens of this diversity framework.
Join MIJE moderators Maynard 200 director Odette Alcazaren-Keeley and co-executive director Martin G. Reynolds for a virtual conversation with ethnic media journalists on their coverage of the racial prejudice experience and systemic inequities impacting African-American, Chinese, Latino and Filipino communities, once again brought into focus by the killing of George Floyd, nationwide protests for change and COVID-19.
