Life Cycles of Inequity: A Colorlines Series on Black Men

After months of reporting on the killings of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Dunn, Colorlines realized we in the news media need to focus as closely on the lives of black men as we do their deaths. So throughout 2014, we published an ambitious series of investigations, dispatches, infographics and multimedia stories exploring the ways in which inequity shapes black male lives. In this workshop, we will screen a selection of short films from the series, evaluate the mainstream news media's coverage of black men and explore strategies for making us all do better.
