Media Reparations With Alicia Bell

HMM producer Natalie Meltzer speaks with Alicia Bell, Organizing Manager at Free Press and Director of Media 2070, a project that calls on the media to make reparations for their participation in state violence against Black people. They discuss the media’s role in perpetuating anti-Black racism throughout American history, what reparations might look like in the context of journalism, and what steps have been taken by newsrooms across the country to address past harms.
