Ethical Appalachian Reporting : A Community Conversation

  • Appalshop 91 Madison Street Whitesburg, KY, 41858 United States (map)

Join WMMT FM and Scalawag in a community discussion about issues in media coverage of Appalachia. We'll share ideas & examples of ethical, accountable, community-led media projects in the region, discuss some less-ideal national coverage Central Appalachians are well-acquainted with, and create a guide for journalists on what-to-do and what-NOT-to-do when covering our mountain communities. The forum will begin at 11am and end at 2:30pm.

Directly after the forum we'll screen Appalshop film "Stranger With A Camera" directed by Elizabeth Barrett, followed by a Q&A with author Elizabeth Catte about her new book "What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia." 

A light lunch will be provided.
