The news media is facing a reckoning over diversity, equity and inclusion. UConn Journalism students Samara Thacker, Courtney Gavitt and Jordana Castelli go behind the stories to find out how journalists should cover race and racism, and how to avoid practices and reflexes that marginalize people.
Featuring interviews with SNY sports anchor Chris Williamson, NextShark head of business development Waylae Gregoire, and UConn Journalism Professor in Residence Gail MacDonald.
Hosted and edited by UConn Journalism junior Naiela Suleiman.
Recorded in April 2021. Listen on Anchor.
