Is it Time for ‘Media Reparations?’

What is Media 2070?

Media 2070 is a research essay on the history of anti-black racism in US media as well as a collaborative movement to find ways to make media “serve as a lever for racial justice.”

“Media organizations were complicit in the slave trade and profited off of chattel slavery; a powerful newspaper publisher helped lead the deadly overthrow of a local government in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Black people held power; racist journalism has led to countless lynchings; southern broadcast stations have opposed integration; and, in the 21st century, powerful social media and tech companies are allowing white supremacists to use their platforms to organize, fundraise, recruit and spread hate.”

Calling all journalists, media-makers, artists, activists, podcasters, bloggers and keepers of the story of our people. Help build this work forward, toward the reparation of harm and the realizing of collective vision.
