Journalism at the Crossroads

Journalism at the Crossroads

Americas and Beyond

Despite differences in time period and situation, there are many journalists today in war-torn, conflict, and critical territories who suffer physically and psychologically. Societies in those territories count on the work of Journalists to exercise their right of free speech. This event is the second of two parts. The first is a presentation of short documentaries (film & radio), held at the John Hope Franklin Center on Monday, February 22, at 6 pm. This session is a discussion-based forum with the journalists. Together, the two events will provide critical insights into the perils and challenges journalists face while reporting from today’s conflict-torn and territories in crisis in the Americas and Beyond.
