The 2018 theme is designed to encourage an examination of the media and Boston’s black communities from historical, contemporary, and prospective angles. At a time when the media as foundational sources of information are being buffeted by ideological and political assaults, new economic realities, and rapid technological change, it is important that we examine the effect of these changes on both traditional and cutting-edge forms of news delivery and the consequences for black Bostonians.

The conference is free and open to the public but registration is required. For more information on the schedule and to register, follow the link to the Blacks in Boston Conference website.
