Join April Baker-Bell, Raven Jones Stanbrough, and Sakeena Everett, the authors of “The Stories They Tell: Mainstream Media, Pedagogies of Healing, and Critical Media Literacy,” for a conversation about the ways mainstream media reinforce white supremacy and anti-blackness. The authors will also discuss how Black youth use social media as counterspaces and how critical media literacy tools can support young people in rewriting harmful narratives. Finally, they will elaborate on what responsibility English educators have to transform the status quo and counter racial injustice. The authors are joined by educator-scholars Cherise McBride and Nicole Mirra and the co-founders of Marginal Syllabus, Remi Kalir and Joe Dillon, for a discussion of the text, which is the featured article this month for Writing Our Civic Futures, which explores a range of scholarship on civic engagement and supports their web annotation at Educator Innovator.
