We are living in a critical time of reckoning in America. The tragic deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd have reignited demands for justice and change in this country. As we continue the fight to eradicate racism and dismantle the systems that preserve it, including the media, it is important to acknowledge and invest in those whose work creates space for black voices and stories.

Join our Community Manager Se’era Ricks for a conversation with three inspiring audio makers and journalists:

Touré, co-host of Democracyish and host of Touré Show

Tonya Mosley, co-host of NPR’s Here and Now and host of KQED’s Truth Be Told,

Gene Demby, co-host of NPR’s Code Switch

Hear their perspectives on how black creators can use their platforms in this moment to elevate other black voices, share our stories, and fight for social change. Throughout the event, we will also take questions and comments from the audience — we want to hear from you about the role audio and other forms of media can play in this movement.

We will send you instructions on how to join us via email beforehand. If you have any questions, email info@podcastgarage.org.

This event will also be recorded and stream live on Facebook. Check back here after the event for links.
