Can We Really Talk? Teaching About Racism through the Media Lens of Current Events (Hosted In Person at the CAT) In-Person

Major events like the mass shooting in Buffalo at a supermarket in a predominantly Black neighborhood, the “slap” at the Oscars and the ongoing consequences following the George Floyd verdict, the prevalence of race and how it is covered in the media remains one of the most important issues of the day. This session will explore how to acknowledge, teach and talk about racism with students (including our own understanding of this sensitive topic). Additionally, we will discuss how media influences the examples and perspectives students bring to class, and consider the challenges and benefits it presents when navigating such topics.

The Can We Really Talk? Series is co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL).

Guest Facilitator: David W. Brown, Associate Professor of Instruction and Diversity Advisor to the Office of the Dean, Klein College of Media and Communication
