The Journalism Department invites you to Contested Spaces: Race, Media, and Journalism. A pair of panels will reflect on the 50th anniversary of the Kerner Report, a report that addressed the issue of journalism and the news media and their role in instigating or mitigating civil conflict. 

The second panel, co-sponsored by the Association of Physicians of Pakistani-descent of North America (APPNA), will present journalists and media personalities who are Muslim or writing about Muslims in post-9/11 America.

Join us to assess the evolution of the news media in productive engagement in civil conflict over the decades.
