Bryant K. Smith: The Media’s Assault on Black Images

February 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

Free
Cornell College Back of Thomas Commons

Is there a media bias against minorities? This interactive workshop will provide the attendants with a history of minority representation in television, film, radio, print, and other forms of electronic media.

Correlations will be drawn between rates of both mental and physical illnesses, incarceration rates, and current images of minority representation in media. The workshop will conclude with strategies for improving one’s media intelligence quota, and resources for identifying more fair and balanced media representations.
