The Critical Need for Black Media Reparations

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In fifty years from now, we’ll look back and tell stories about the times before the media was just.

To create a portal that reaches that future, plump and abundant with decolonization, what bold change should journalists, tech workers, artists, activists, and policymakers be dreaming about?

In our time together, we will discuss why media reparations for the Black community is critical to reconcile and repair the harm caused by media coverage and media policies that promote the myth of Black inferiority.

What are your wildest dreams for the media of 2070?

Craft paths with us to that future.
