Basic Black Live: Navigating The Afrosphere

(Originally broadcast on April 8, 2011) 
This week on Basic Black: The National Conference for Media Reform is being held in Boston this week so we turn our attention to people of color and social media. We’ll discuss how digital media has replaced or enhanced the work of traditional institutions such as churches or civil rights organizations in encouraging/organizing social activism; we’ll also look at recent trends in how African Americans in particular are using social media.

Our panel tonight: Callie Crossley, host of The Callie Crossley Show, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Kim McLarin, assistant professor of writing, literature, and publishing, Emerson College; Phillip Martin, senior investigative reporter, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Leutisha Stills, political blogger for Jack and Jill Politics and Black Agenda Report; and Jamilah King, news editor for Colorlines.com.
