C3: Saturday – UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs as part of the Meyer and Renee Luskin Lecture Series: “Media and Social Change”
Presented by UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs as part of the Meyer and Renee Luskin Lecture Series
For better or for worse, our community vision and self-image has been shaped by — and in some unfortunate instances, tainted — by the way communities of color have been portrayed in mass media and popular entertainment. In this special conversation with filmmakers, scholars, and cultural workers, we will assess whether progressive change can be enacted by a paradigm shift in how we are portrayed onscreen, in print, and in other forms of commercial and independently-produced communication.
