Pittsburgh Black Media Panel with Pittsburgh City Paper and PublicSource

February 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Does Pittsburgh media have a diversity problem?

Pittsburgh City Paper and PublicSource present: Pittsburgh Black Media Panel, with support from Pittsburgh Black Media Federation and the August Wilson African-American Cultural Center.

This panel-based discussion will bring together an esteemed group of Pittsburgh Black media professionals to highlight what local media organizations are getting right, and wrong, when covering stories involving African Americans and the city’s Black communities. The two-part panel, hosted by Pittsburgh artist and curator Tara Coleman and PublicSource community correspondent Jourdan Hicks, will highlight the systematic racism and bias that can appear in reporting, while bringing awareness to the effects it can have on local Black communities in hopes of reducing bias in future reporting.
