Moving the Race Conversation Forward is a report by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation that aims to reshape and reform the way we talk about race and racism in our country. The paper includes content analysis of mainstream media (finding two-thirds of race-focused media coverage fails to consider systemic racism), analysis of seven harmful racial discourse practices, and case studies of successful interventions to counteract these trends.
The accompanying video, produced by Jay Smooth, expands in an accessible way on the report's analysis of media's failure to consider systemic racism. Smooth is the founder of New York's longest running hip-hop radio show, WBAI's Underground Railroad, and Race Forward Video & Multimedia Producer. _______________________________________________________ Race Forward recently united with Center for Social Inclusion in order to align, strengthen, and multiply our efforts towards racial justice. The new Race Forward will work to transform institutions and partner with communities to move policy, culture, and narrative for racial justice. www.raceforward.org/race-forward-csi-uniting
