Laura Flanders Show

Season 2, Episode 48 of 52

More than 20 Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) received bomb threats at the start of Black History Month - including a threat on Valentine's Day at Howard University. While the FBI is calling it a high priority investigation and threats are spreading to high schools, there is comparatively little media coverage of this assault on civil rights and education. On this month's "Meet the BIPOC Press" with URL Media, our guests explore the unequal media treatment of domestic terrorist threats on African American spaces and consider the racist stereotyping of Black and white youth. We also explore the significance of HBCUs in Black History and the connections with the greater African Diaspora. How can BIPOC media lead the way to spread awareness and protect the legacy, diversity, and innovations at HBCUs? Co-host Sara Lomax-Reese, Co-Founder, URL Media. Guests Eric Grimes/Brother Shomari, Host, Groundings Evolutions Elevations, WURD Radio Krista Johnson, Director, Center for African Studies, Howard University.
