Improving coverage of communities of color
August 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
The Kerner Report in 1968 found news organizations had failed to meet the “legitimate” journalistic expectations of black citizens that their communities be fairly and thoroughly covered. Coverage still fails to depict a realistic picture of how people of color live their lives, with much of it focused on crime and an array of social and economic ills that afflict their communities. For decades, journalists of color have raised these issues and suggested ways to address them. Some newsroom managers finally appear to be listening.
