Join the Park Center for Independent Media on Wednesday July 29 for a webinar on the media environment amid the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing protests against racial injustice. Our speakers will review the coverage of pandemic and protests by the mainstream media and discuss if recent reporting on racial justice protests represents a shift from the traditional underplaying of race in police stories. The webinar will also explore how the pandemic is affecting independent media outlets and what should we expect in the future.
Our panelists include editors at major independent media outlets, a correspondent who was arrested while covering Black Lives Matter protest and a distinguished scholar. Panel discussion will be followed by Q&A.
