Journalism and Media Literacy (Student-Created Guide): Black Lives Matter (Correa-Buntley)

The content of this guide was created by students in Dr. Ammina Kothari's COMM 561 class (Fall 2016). It provides links to credible news sources, social media to follow, digital reporting tools, and fact-checking websites.


By Tymoni Correa-Buntley ('17) | COMM 561 Senior Project (Dr. Ammina Kothari)

The Black Lives Matter movement has increasingly been misidentified as a terrorist organization, rather than a campaign for recognition of the injustices against black and brown people in the United States. The Black Lives Matter movement does not invalidate the lives or sufferings of non-black people nor does in encourage violence. Instead, the movement aims to highlight the history and on-going systems of oppression against this specific minority group. The movement believes by shining light on these injustices, resolution may begin.

The following sources are provided in attempt to present future RIT students and faculty with accurate information on black and brown people’s on-going fight for justice in America. In addition, this guide presents activists and reporters with tools for telling multimedia stories.
