Fourth World Radyo: Mainstream Journalism & #BlackLivesMatter: A Conversation with Andrew Westmoreland
Summary: In the wake of the in-custody-deaths of American African #SandraBland, Indigenous Americans #RexdaleHenry, #SarahLeeCircleBear and African-born #ShekuBayoh in Kirkcaldy, Scotland (and) the recent US police murders of #SamuelDuBose, #PaulCastaway, #AllenLocke and #JonathanSanders, Fourth World Radyo speaks with independent journalist and activist Andrew Westmoreland ( @drewwest_press ) who has been chronicling the #BlackLivesMatter movement since the Ferguson Uprising.
He offers his personal insights into the factors that inform editorial decisions made within US newsrooms and speculates on how grassroots, independent media can balance-out the general public’s scope of understanding issues surrounding social justice.
