About the webinar: This roundtable discussion, hosted by Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department (LA Civil Rights) & Councilmember Mark Ridley Thomas will bring together reporters, editors, and journalists to engage in a meaningful discussion on African American representation in newsrooms and news coverage moderated by LA Civil Rights Executive Director Capri Maddox. This conversation will explore the history and future of diversity in Los Angeles news media as well as the landscape of media industries following a year of racial reckoning, rising threats from white supremacist groups, and the inauguration of a new President and the first Black woman Vice President. The roundtable will identify needed actions to address discrimination through the lens of journalism and media, and be streamed live online at facebook.com/LACivilRights as a part of LA Civil Rights’ programming for Black History Month.
