The Media in America: Black Women and the 2020 Election

Errin Whack

Back to "Fall 2019" courses

This seminar will focus on black women and the roles--voter, organizer, influencer, candidate--they have played and will play in the national conversation and upcoming U.S. presidential election. We will also explore why and how the press can and should better report on the political priorities of this consequential constituency. Students will learn about the roots of the political journey of black women in America, including the pioneering journalists who first wrote on this subject, while acquiring the skills, perspective, and context to cover news at the intersection of race, gender, and politics today.

If the course fills, students may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
