Event description

Description

For over a century, the black press in Los Angeles has played a significant role in galvanizing African American communities around important issues. In the early 20th century, Jefferson Lewis Edmonds, editor of The Liberator, highlighted and championed self-determination and social responsibility through journalism. In the 21st century, amplifying communities of color has become vital both locally and globally. Tre'vell Anderson, president of the LA chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists and Director of Culture and Entertainment, Out Magazine; Brandon I. Brooks, managing editor at the Los Angeles Sentinel and L.A. Watts Times; and Lilly Workneh, editor-in-chief of Blavity News, discuss the future of black journalism and its impact on the city of Los Angeles. Moderated by Tony Cox, associate chair and professor of journalism at Cal State Los Angeles.

Presented in partnership with the J.L. Edmonds Project.
