Social justice initiatives designed to bring long-needed advancement of positive change to the nation’s African American community have surged to the forefront in the weeks since the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police Department officers.
But, is it “trendy,” or is it representative of a real sea change?
What role does Black Media play in this … and what exactly is Black Media.
Those topics were addressed across a lively, hour-long digitally delivered discussion with key Black media leaders in the first-ever Black Media Symposium, a RBR+TVBR online event presented by Triton Digital.
Wednesday’s event was a smashing success, and this FREE event can be viewed on-demand on both YouTube and on Facebook.
Serving as co-keynoters were journalists Ed Gordon and Roland S. Martin.
Other participants included Circle City Broadcasting owner and WISH-8 and WNDY-23 in Indianapolis GM DuJuan McCoy; Chesley Maddox-Dorsey, CEO of American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) and Superadio Networks; Omar Thompson, a Principal for Dallas-based marketing strategy firm 1Nine Marketing & Media; and Karen Slade, Vice President and General Manager of KJLH-FM 102.3 in Los Angeles.
