Black Media Matters is a one-hour moderated discussion on the state of Black media, the unique space occupied by Black media, and other hyper-local media outlets whose coverage focuses primarily on issues of social, economic and environmental equality, equity and justice. From Selma in 1965 to #BlackLivesMatter, from Hill v. Thomas to Roe v. Wade, and from Hurricane Katrina to the BP oil spill, this discussion will focus on reporting the issues affecting marginalized communities from the inside out.

Panelists will discuss their experiences in taking national and global issues and reporting on those topics from the perspective of some of the nation’s most marginalized communities -- exploring the techniques, strategies and methods journalists have used to navigate and report on the often divisive subjects of age, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, and sexuality to produce news content that offers a diversity of views, and are compelling, fact-based and fair.
