We’re excited to announce the launch of a new blog, Conscious Media Maker! Conscious Media Maker is a blog for entertainment, media, advertising and public relations professionals who are committed to bringing about more realistic, three-dimensional representations of people of color.
We’ve been blogging about issues of race and racism in media and pop culture for a few years now on Racialicious. But it’s mostly been from the consumer’s perspective. What we want to do with Conscious Media Maker is create a space where people who work in the industries that produce these images and concepts can get together and make a difference.
The blog will be a mix of news, commentary, criticism, and interviews with industry leaders. It will also be a community where people can share resources and best practices, and discuss the role that race and racism play within the industry.
