Covering Black Lives Matter

January 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Protests in the streets. Clashes in the legal system.

Activists of color across the country are drawing attention as they protest perceived injustice from politicians, law enforcement and the legal system.

As media outlets cover actions from Black Lives Matter and other groups, how can they ensure they’re accurately capturing what’s happening both on the streets and in the courtroom?

Join the Chicago Headline Club and the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists for a panel discussion Jan. 13 on how to cover the Black Lives Matter movement.

Panelists include:

Darryl Holliday, City Bureau editorial director
Maudlyne Ihejirika, Sun-Times urban affairs reporter
Damon Williams, codirector of the Let Us Breathe Collective

Moderator: Kathy Chaney, WBEZ reporter/producer

When: Wednesday, Jan. 13, 6 p.m.
Where: American Bar Association, 321 N. Clark St., 21st Floor
How much: Free admission


Tell security at the front desk that you’re here for an event at the ABA Journal, 21st floor. The staff contact is Molly McDonough Carson.
