As the presidential election approaches, citizens must sort through a growing avalanche of controversies and media stories rooted in race and culture differences. Deggans’ talk will sort through media coverage of this election season using lessons from his book, Race-Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation.
