The Story Behind the Story:

Philly Mag's Tom McGrath, Robert Huber Address Black Journalists

Philly Magazine Editor Tom McGrath and staff writer Robert Huber will discuss the publication's controversial "Being White in Philly" article with members of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ) 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 at the Philadelphia Inquirer's public speaking room, located at 801 Market St.

The article "Being White in Philly" has sparked outrage by many in regards to how Black Philadelphians are portrayed, the potential of damaging race relations between whites and Blacks in Philadelphia, and the lack of focus on diversity in hiring practices among media entities in the region.

Local journalist Nia Meeks will moderate the discussion with McGrath. She is a news and political analyst for Channel 6 ABC's Inside Story, a weekly public affairs program on the top rated television station in Philadelphia, the nation's fourth-largest media market.

Persons interested in attending the discussion must reserve their seat through the Eventbrite link.

For more information call Johann Calhoun (215) 893-5739.
