On February 18th from 4:30-6:00 pm we will hold our annual Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture and Dean’s Forum. This year our lecturer will be Dr. Allissa Richardson. Dr. Richardson is assistant professor of journalism at USC Annenberg and author of Bearing Witness While Black: African Americans, Smartphones and the New Protest #Journalism. The book explores the lives of 15 mobile journalist-activists who have documented the Black Lives Matter movement using only their smartphones and Twitter.
This will be a virtual event. Register for the lecture and Deans Forum here.
