BLACK OWNED MEDIA MATTERS

BLACK OWNED MEDIA MATTERS

Who gets to tell the story matters.

Minority voices are underserved as white billionaires expand their media empires. That's why it is so important to support independent, minority owned media channels. Ethnic news outlets to inform and engage diverse audiences on broader public issues to build a more inclusive participatory democracy.

"The ethnic media sector is buffeted by the challenges of the digital era — from the collapse of the advertising model to the explosion of social media. Their survival depends on diverse audiences having somewhere to turn for trusted news, for visibility, for a voice." - Ethnic Media Services

"When it came to the coverage of the coronavirus and the disproportionate racial impact of the pandemic, Black media wrote five times more stories about the issue. They also wrote twice as much about frontline and essential workers. In general, when it came to health, pandemic aside, Black media covered more health issues that had a higher relevance to their communities than “mainstream” media did." - Word In Black

Education is of the highest importance

"This role of the Black press was both needed and visible over the past 18 months when the convergence of the worst pandemic in US history and state violence both were disproportionately impacting Black Americans. This report, a comparative content analysis of the Black press and US mainstream media, shows the ways that Black media have continued the tradition started by the Journal in a contemporary context.

In the past 18 months, Black media uniquely focused on children, schools and students across topic areas. This focus of Black press was noted by the Freedom’s Journal, which stated, “Education being an object of the highest importance…we shall…urge upon our brethren the necessity and expediency of training their children, while young, to habits of industry, and thus forming them for becoming useful members of society.” - Black Media Report

Black media centers the humanity of people who are often dehumanized by society and not given that by mainstream media. Black media accurately call people killed by police brutality victims, sons and daughters.

Accurate reporting of police brutality

Black media centers the humanity of people who are often dehumanized by society and not given that by mainstream media. Black media accurately call people killed by police brutality victims, sons and daughters. That thread of empathy and recognition of everyone’s humanity and dignity was first stitched in the Freedom’s Journal. It noted, “And while these important subjects shall occupy the columns of the Freedom’s Journal, we would not be unmindful of our brethren who are still in the iron fetters of bondage. They are our kindred by all the ties of nature; and though but little can be [affected] by us, still let our sympathies be poured forth, and our prayers in their behalf, ascend to Him who is able to succour them.” Black Media Report
