Start Date: 1/30/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 1/30/2013End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
In conjunction with the Moonstone Arts Center, the Temple University School of Media and Communication’s Department of Journalism and the Temple Association of Black Journalists are hosting a panel discussion on the future of the black media as part of a city-wide celebration of Ida B.Wells, an activist, educator and journalist. Panel participants include Kierna Mayo, editorial director for; Irv Randolph, managing editor of the Philadelphia Tribune; Stephanie Renee, program director at WURD; and Vernon Odom, veteran reporter at 6ABC. Lori L. Tharps, assistant professor of journalism, will serve as moderator. Expect a thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion about the state of black media today, its projected future and enduring legacy. Panelists will describe how they’ve managed to survive and thrive in today’s crowded media landscape as well as the challenges they continue to face. We will discuss the reasons why some segments of black media are stronger today than they were 10 years ago, while others fail. And we will try to define just who black America is, anyway. Light refreshments will be served after the discussion.
