When it comes to reporting events and issues in communities of color, who’s telling the story is often as important as the story itself. Basic Black hosts three veteran journalists—Howard Manly, Editorial Page Columnist of the Boston Herald; Yawu Miller, Managing Editor of the Bay State Banner; and Janine Fondon, Founder & Publisher of Unity First Online Newswire— in a discussion of the many views a story can have when viewed through the prism of race.
