Reviews - What do customers think about Talking the Walk: A Communications Guide for Racial Justice?
An incomparable resource for anti-racist media activists! Apr 30, 2008
For media activists interested in issues of racial equality, "Talking the Walk" is an essential tool for disrupting racist media stereotypes and democratizing the news. By combining critical social analysis with communication guidelines, case studies, and sample materials, this easy-to-use resource will help you reframe public debate on crucial topics like police brutality, immigration, and environmental racism. Though challenging the right-wing corporate media's economic and political offensive against communities of color is admittedly a daunting task, the authors of this important book are optimistic that grassroots groups can successfully change public policy by becoming media watch-dogs and developing grassroots alternative media.
Grassroots PR for racial justice Mar 15, 2008
Fantastic resource for small organizations and progressive campaigns on how to use public relations to further racial justice. Useful in many advocacy areas, with concrete examples and samples. If your guerrilla activist collective needs a crash course in media strategy, this is an excellent place to start.
