Bipoc Journalists On Covering Covid and Racism

BIPOC journalists reflect on what it is to be veterans of two of the most devastating wars in recent history: the coronavirus pandemic and the centuries-long war on Black bodies through systemic racism and police brutality. In this media roundtable-a collaboration between The Laura Flanders Show and URL Media-we take a different approach to Memorial Day. One that centers the work of BIPOC journalists from the front lines. How are they responding to the needs of their communities, and where do we go from here? Guests: Sara Lomax-Reese, President & CEO of WURD Radio Philadelphia and Co-Founder of URL Media (guest host); S. Mitra Kalita, Founder Epicenter-NYC and Co-Founder of URL Media (guest host); Garry Pierre-Pierre, Founder and publisher of The Haitian Times; Mukhtar Ibrahim, Editor and executive director of Sahan Journa.
