On tonight’s Full Circle, 9/11/09, we brought together Bay Area community & media groups that attended the Allied Media Conference in Detroit. We wanted to bring on these groups to continue the great work that took place in Detroit in July.
We invited Eloise S. Lee Program Director from Media Alliance, Malkia Cyril Executive Director at the Center for Media Justice, Eden Jequinto and Elijah Smith from Eastside Arts Alliance, Khan Pham the Associate Director at Making Contact produced by the National Radio Project, Shanina Shumate who is the Program Director at TEMPO, the Technological Media Project of Oakland at the Women of Color Resource Center.
We spoke with all of the participants about the mission of their organizations, and what they like about their work. We also spoke about why the Allied Media Conference is so unique and what Media Justice is.
Here are some audio highlights from the evening.
