Challenging police narratives, questioning how we cover racial issues and the justice system, encouraging a more nuanced view of our culture beyond stereotypes — Black Twitter has prompted journalists to change the face of news coverage. How can we take these lessons to Latino, Muslim and other underreported communities and learn to better engage, report and respond to the needs of people we cover?
