Placement: Black Journalism Is the Key to a More Truthful Media Future

Media 2070 was recently featured in the Black Wall Street Times to discuss the power of Black journalists and building a better newscape:





Throughout history, Black reporters and journalists around the nation have been paid tens of thousands of dollars less than their White counterparts. And yet they are much more likely to cover racial-justice protests, hold police and other institutions accountable, and take on complex beats.


In our award-winning documentary, Black in the Newsroom, the Media 2070 project looks deeply into these dynamics as we follow Elizabeth Montgomery, a reporter who was hired for her dream job as an arts-and-culture reporter at The Arizona Republic.
