In conjunction with the Moonstone Arts Center, Temple University’s Department of Journalism and the Temple Association of Black Journalists host a panel discussion on the future of Black media as part of a city-wide celebration of activist, educator and journalist Ida. B. Wells.
Panelists will describe how they’ve managed to survive and thrive in today’s crowded media landscape as well as the challenges they continue to face. Panel participants include Kierna Mayo (editorial director, digital for Ebony.com), Irv Randolph (managing editor of the Philadelphia Tribune), Stephanie Renee (program director at WURD), and Vernon Odom (veteran reporter at 6ABC). Lori L. Tharps, assistant professor of journalism at Temple, serves as moderator.
