Moving the Race Conversation Forward

Friday, 11/14
11:00 am to 12:30 pm

From Ferguson to Paula Deen, this session will identify and describe some of the key ways media-driven conversations in the United States unproductively approach issues of race and racism. Panelists will present research and analysis of recent media coverage, describe some of the major impediments to productive racial discourse, and provide recommendations on how to reframe the public conversation on race using lessons from several recent interventions and initiatives that are breaking down significant barriers toward racial justice.
