Prof. Vora moderates online discussion on racialized media coverage of protests
On Monday, June 29th at 3pm, our very own Prof. Vora and Ben Jahre are moderating the following discussion:
Unpacking Racialized News Through Media Literacy: “Looting” and the George Floyd Protests for Racial Justice
This session will explore how media coverage of Black protest employs racist language, images, and signaling. Participants will then have the opportunity to discuss and practice techniques for verifying sources and finding alternative voices when encountering questionable information, using media coverage of the George Floyd protests as an example. Moderated by Neha Vora and Ben Jahre.
