Recent news stories and television programming have raised questions about the representation of people of color in the media. To help answer those questions, the American Advertising Federation and Shocase, Inc. have gathered a panel of ad professionals, academics, policy influencers and media executives to examine the effects of media content on society, specifically the perceptions created in the minds of younger audiences. More importantly, we will discover how to collectively generate the necessary structural changes to institute realistic imagery of multicultural communities. The action starts here.
