Black Media: Reflecting on the Past and Reimagining the Future is a day-long symposium created to highlight Black media professionals and their innovative and important work in the journalism, PR, marketing, advertising, and film industries. Our symposium speakers have broken barriers in their fields, amplified Black voices and stories, and navigated the challenges that still exist for Black storytellers and communications professionals. Their experiences and perspectives will be shared on panels ranging in topics from the future of antiracist journalism to cultivating diverse talent in the media industry. Attendees will network with other media professionals, gain insight into their own careers and ambitions, and celebrate the important work–past, present, and future–of Black media.
