      EVENT DETAILS
      News for All the People: The Epic Story of Race and the American Media

      "News for All the People" is a sweeping account of the class and racial conflicts in American news media, from the first colonial newspaper to the internet age. It chronicles key government decisions that created our nation’s system of news, major political battles over the role of the press, and the rise of media conglomerates and epoch-defining technologies. The book reveals how racial segregation in the media distorted the news and unearths numerous examples of how publishers and broadcasters actually fomented racial violence through their coverage.

      "News for All the People" illuminates how Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American journalists fought to create a vibrant yet little-known alternative and democratic press and forced open the doors of the major media companies. 

      Juan González is a staff columnist for New York Daily News, a two-time winner of the George Polk Award for commentary (1998 and 2010), and co-host of Democracy Now! Gonzalez is a former president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, where he was inducted into the NAHJ's Hall of Fame. Under his leadership, NAHJ created the Parity Project to assist news organizations in hiring and retaining Hispanic journalists and improving coverage of the Hispanic communities across the U.S
