Participants, including activists, representatives of independent media, recording artists, and social critics, talked about race relations, depictions of minorities in the media, diversity in main stream media newsrooms, as well as the impact of news coverage of recent hurricane damage to Gulf Coast communities on public perceptions of racial minorities. They also talked about methods of reaching the black community through non-traditional media outlets and articulating a voice for African American concerns. The event was promoted as an independent discussion on creating unity among activists and media, taking place on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Million Man March. Following their remarks, participants responded to questions and comments from the audience. close
