Description

The narrative of Black men in the media needs to change, in more ways than one.

There are plenty of Black faces in front of the camera. Now is the time to have the discussion about the faces behind the camera. Who are the people making decisions about which stories are being told and how?

The Atlanta Association of Black Journalists will tackle this subject on June 1, 2019. This year's focus for the Black Male Media Project is "Becoming a Gatekeeper." We've invited six panelists in different decision-making roles to share how they landed their job, the impact it has caused, and how can we get more Black men involved in decision-making roles.

This project was designed to help change the narrative around the lives and images of Black men in the news and in society, with a series of workshops nationwide to be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Participating chapters will promote the project - which is open to anyone who is passionate about this movement - using the hashtag #InspireBlackMen

After all, who's best to tell the stories of Black men? Other than Black men.

Here's a look at some of the guest speakers for this year's event:

  • Tolly Carr, Partner, HBCU Gameday
  • Eric Ludgood, Assistant News Director at Fox 5
  • Eric Burns, Vice President of Content Production and Sports, Georgia Public Broadcasting
  • Collie Burnett, President and CEO, AIB Network
  • Glenn Marshall, Producer. PowerStarLive
  • Drew Dawson, Station Manager, Georgia Public Broadcasting - Augusta
