How Race Plays a Role in the News
Monday, Nov. 9, 7 p.m.
Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond Building
Has the color of the president changed the character of media? Boston Globe columnist and Lovejoy Visiting Journalist in Residence Derrick Z. Jackson will discuss race and the media. A columnist since 1988, Jackson has won numerous awards for his commentary, including two from the National Education Writers Association and six for political and sports commentary from the National Association of Black Journalists. Jackson is also a photographer, and his images of Barack Obama on the campaign trail were featured this summer at a gallery on Martha's Vineyard.
