Coverage of race, class and social mobility

A panel discussion hosted by CJR, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington—the full name of which was “The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” While progress has clearly been made since 1963, there is still plenty of room for improvement in media coverage of race, class, and social mobility, which CJR looked at in its March/April cover package. Some of the voices from our story join us at the Newseum for a panel seeking to continue the discussion. We'll have an embedded recording of the event up shortly on this page. Until then click here to view the video on C-SPAN.
