This session is co-sponsored by the Wallace House Center for Journalists at University of Michigan
Why do Black and Brown journalists matter? In journalism and other forms of media the narratives of Black and Brown people in America have often been told from a White or mainstream perspective, resulting in skewed presentation of issues, perpetuation of stereotypes and persistent marginalization. Join us for a virtual discussion on the importance of diverse representation in media, featuring local BIPOC journalists who will discuss their experiences in the field. This session will be co-moderated by Lynette Clemetson, Director of the Wallace House Center for Journalists at University of Michigan. Panelists include Rochelle Riley, Director of Arts and Culture at the City of Detroit; Kat Stafford, National Investigative Writer for the Associated Press; and Jarrad Henderson, Visual Journalist and Filmmaker and 2022-2023 Knight-Wallace Fellow here at U-M.
