Reporting on Race

This course will cover the history of Black Canadians and how problematic narratives have perpetuated racial biases and systemic injustice. How does this reality impact the media industry generally and journalism specifically? How is it reflected in the media workplace and in the journalism it produces? In this reporting course, students will identify these biases and deconstruct reporting on Black communities. The course will also examine the ways in which the representation of Black people has changed (or been perpetuated) when produced by Black media. The course approach will stem from a place of empowerment, elevating Black voices, perspectives and stories and recognizing their importance and value. Assignments include hands-on, multi-platform reporting, class presentations and guest speakers.
