Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Wesley Lowery believes that the media’s role in covering issues of bias and structural inequities is central to driving change. But, he contends, the media is clinging to an outmoded operating system of “objectivity” that is at odds with “the truth” of the Black experience in the United States. Lowery joins Weber Shandwick public affairs strategist Emil Hill and DE&I strategist Tai Wingfield to debate the power and evolved responsibility of the media in reporting this generation’s most critical societal movement, the role of truth in a deeply polarized world and the increasing importance of the business community in advocacy, balancing the dialogue and creating sanctuaries of listening and civility for employees.
