Twin Cities PBS – TPT Community Conversation: Headlines, History and Housing

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Housing rights – seen through the lens of new media.

Photo journalism, film footage, and reporting changed the narrative during the Civil Rights movement. But how did the issue of housing fit into this narrative? What was the tone and context of reporting in Minnesota from the mainstream and diverse press?

Join us for an interactive discussion featuring rare clips from local broadcast media and historic examples of newspaper reporting and conversation with local journalists and broadcast media makers.

Continuing the conversation around the Emmy-award winning documentary Jim Crow of the North, Twin Cities PBS and the Twin Cities Black Journalists, the local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, present a screening and discussion on how newspapers and broadcast media have reported on the fight for housing rights in Minnesota over the last century. This event is a part of the Retro Local series of events coinciding with the new PBS series Retro Report.
