Join five prominent voices in movement journalism for an urgent discussion of community-centered reporting and the end of objectivity. Since its proliferation in the 1920s, objectivity has been used as a tool of journalism, developed to create neutrality in reporting. However, as journalist Ramona Martinez says, "Objectivity is the ideology of the status quo." What has been forgotten in media history is that there have always been journalists resisting even the largest journalism corporations and their unequal coverage of the marginalized communities. Recently there has been a rapid growth of those who call themselves movement journalists. These reporters seek to recenter community and directly impacted folks in their reporting instead of solely relying on the voice of institutions to create reporting that is factual, accurate, and speaks to the humanity of the people they report on. This conversation about the end of objectivity is held by panelists who are all a part of journalism organizations that work to bring authentic reporting and coverage to marginalized communities, including Just Media Project, Scalawag Magazine, Media 2070, and the Texas Observer.
