Police Violence, Racial Injustice, and the Press: Reflections on Coverage of the Chauvin Trial | Shorenstein Center

May 28, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The trial of Derek Chauvin sparked national conversations about violent policing and racial injustice. In its wake, how should policy makers, police, and journalists respond? The New Yorker staff writer Jelani Cobb (Spring 2018 Shorenstein Writer in Residence) and BBC correspondent Tara McKelvey (Fall 2012 Shorenstein Fellow) — who both covered the trial from Minneapolis — will join The Atlantic staff writer Adam Serwer (Spring 2019 Shorenstein Fellow) to discuss how public discourse and press coverage have and have not changed in the fallout of the trial. Institute of Politics executive director Setti Warren will moderate the event.
