Upcoming Research Talk: Race and Place in Washington, DC April 30

Posted by Tim on April 26, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Research Information and Opportunities

Research Talk Details
Friday, April 30 at 3:00 p.m.
RSVP Here
“Race and Place in Washington, D.C.”

Abstract: This research talk will discuss the effects of gentrification and media on Black communities in Washington, D.C. This research analyzes Black media representation by comparing two Washington, D.C.-based newspapers: The Washington Post and The Prince of Popville. By searching for trends about the frequency and types of Black topics discussed in both newspapers, I argue that based on where Black people live in accordance to the media coverage they encompass, can show the effects of gentrification and Black displacement in D.C.
