Sorry for the short notice. If you have found the news coverage of the Somali (and by extension African community) wanting, come with your questions, complaints and most importantly suggestions.
Where: U of MN Journalism School — Murphy Hall Room 130
When: Thursday, February 12, 2009 | 7:15 – 9:00 p.m
What: A discussion about news coverage of the Somali community: What are the challenges to covering an immigrant community? Are there good stories that aren’t being told? How can we build strong relationships between the media and Somali community leaders?
Our own Nekessa will be a panelist at the event alongside other media and community people. Here’s a chance to be heard. See you there!
