"This event will be a space to meet one another virtually and discuss innovative ways to develop a media system that no longer harms Black lives. As numerous screenings of our documentary film Black in the Newsroom have been held in cities across the nation over the last year, we’re proud to have formed so many partnerships in our fight for an equitable media system.”
