Gil Scott Heron famously uttered “the revolution will not be televised.” This was before the Internet enabled Black communities to broadcast the images of police “shooting down brothers in the instant replay” and to embrace ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬. The depiction of race by mainstream newspapers, radio and TV have fueled racial bias in the United States, yet media has also been a tool for Black liberation – from the first Black-owned newspaper in 1872 Freedom’s Journal to the “Twitter fingers” of today’s Black millennials. This month’s Media Justice Salon will explore the historical and present day relationship of media and Black communities.

Dr. Stacey Patton, Morgan State University
Brandi Collins, Color of Change
Shanelle Matthews, Blackbird/Black Lives Matter

Moderated by:
Aaron Ammons, CU Citizens for Peace and Justice
Angella Bellota, Center for Media Justice
