The West Virginia University at Parkersburg Social Justice Committee will host National Public Radio (NPR) television critic Eric Deggans on Monday, Feb. 25 from 12:15-1 p.m. in the college theater (room 1305). The presentation, “Building Bridges Instead of Walls: Decoding Media’s Confusing Coverage of Race and Culture,” is free and open to the public and will be streamed live to the Jackson County Center in room 207.

During his presentation, Deggans will explain why he believes media outlets have fallen short in covering race and culture issues, provide tips on how to recognize when the media practices the politics of division and how to decode the media’s messages and their motives. He will also offer a guide for how to talk about race and culture across racial, class and cultural lines.

A book signing will follow the presentation for attendees who bring a copy of Race Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation.
