Broadcasters Soledad O’Brien, Joy Reid and Kai Wright to Discuss Racial Justice through Media and Art


On Monday, November 12 at 7 p.m. Montclair State University’s School of Communication and Media and the Montclair Art Museum will present a panel discussion on the intersection of social justice, race, media and art. “From Kara Walker to Colin Kaepernick: Racial Justice through Media and Art, a Conversation” features media luminary panelists Soledad O’Brien, Joy Reid and Kai Wright with James E. Johnson of the Brennan Center for Social Justice as moderator.

The panel discussion is being framed by the Museum’s fall exhibition titled, “Kara Walker: Virginia’s Lynch Mob and Other Works,” and also uses the 50th anniversary of the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy – and their respective coverage – as a backdrop proving ample perspective of our nation’s struggles and progress.
