Race and the Media
An exploration of our country's fragmented media landscape and how media outlets can shape one's opinion on race. Is the media covering race comprehensively and fairly? What are the effects of growing perceptions of media bias? And why are journalists of color underrepresented in newsrooms?
This panel took place on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, and was part of the LBJ Foundation's The Summit on Race in America, held April 8-10, 2019, at the LBJ Presidential Library, located on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
