The death of George Floyd this summer sparked social movements across the country. It also set off deep introspection and analysis across America’s newsrooms – including ours – about the portrayal of communities of color and the historically unequal treatment of nonwhite colleagues. NBC University presents a conversation around how our newsroom is tackling the way we cover race and inequality in America. We’ll examine how our journalism changed and some takeaways for your own newsrooms.
