In this session, we delve into the ways in which mainstream media frames racial issues. Specifically, we will use a critical race lens to examine the intersections of identity and experience as the Black Lives Matter movement became a pop culture phenomenon.

We will explore language and terminology used in mainstream media to define Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) experiences versus white counterparts and discuss the choice of “Chaos” or “Community,” as coined by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his 1967 book, “Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?”
