During my group project presentation of “Existing While Black,” I mentioned a website called “Take Part.” An online news source,Take Part, aims to engage readers and bring awareness to prevalent social issues and therefore trigger social change. Take Part is owned by Participant Media, a company which supports diverse social causes and produced The Help, Food Inc., and Waiting for “Superman”.
I really recommend you check it out. Here are a few articles that are being highlighted this week and reflect some of our class discussions:
- “See the Target Halloween Ad That Has Disability Advocates Cheering“
- “College Students Are Making It Tougher To Ignore Racism on Campus“
- “Horrors Behind Bars: Groundbreaking Survey Reveals Life of LGBTQ Prisoners“
