To honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, our January Storytellers of Color features Diamond Hardiman, Reparative Journalism Manager with Free Press.
Hardiman speaks with KGNU’s Rossana Longo-Better on the newly created Reparative Journalism Project, a video series which is the brainchild of Media 2070 and News Voices.
The first video of the series, called A Journey Toward Reparative Journalism, discusses the legacy of harm in journalism and the subjugation of Black and Indigenous folks as a central root of journalism. The framework of reparations offers a co-created process of repair that journalism institutions must undertake — and that Black communities can learn from to begin their own healing.
