Event reminder: If you are in the NYC area, come join Women In Media & News for a lively media literacy workshop at the WAM! (Women, Action & Media) mini-conference tomorrow, Saturday, March 27. The full conference schedule is below. There’s also a happy hour and networking session tonight from 6-9pm at the Black Sheep Pub (428 Bergen Street, Brooklyn), so come say hi if you work in or care about women and the media. [UPDATE, 6pm Friday: Just learned that the conference is sold out.]

If you’re available from 3:30 - 4:45 tomorrow afternoon, come join me at the following media literacy workshop:
Jezebels, Divas and Welfare Queens: How To Decode Images of Women of Color in Reality TV and Film

From hypersexualized “bitches and hos” on VH1’s “Flavor of Love” and “I Love New York” to the abusive “welfare mother” and brutalized, illiterate Black daughter of the Oscar-nominated film, “Precious,” images of women of color in popular culture are fraught with gender and racial bias. Learn how to decode sexism and racism in reality TV and mainstream film during this media literacy workshop with media critics and media activists Jennifer L. Pozner (Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV) and Courtney Young (Color Me Color Stuck: How Colorism Marginalizes Women of Color in Popular Culture). Using wit and multimedia video clips, Young and Pozner will offer participants tools they can use to become active, critical media consumers, and to spread the media literacy gospel among their friends, peers, kids, colleagues and community.

    I have really learned newer and more effective things by your blog site. One other thing I’d prefer to say is newer computer system operating systems often allow extra memory to be used, but they as well demand more memory space simply to operate. If people’s computer can not handle much more memory plus the newest application requires that storage increase, it can be the time to shop for a new Computer. Thanks

    Greetings. I am a young Cardiopulmonary Technologist and was wishing to better be set up for my job at The Walt Disney Company. This is the reason why I arrived to your web site. Being brought up in Jacksonville and choosing to school at Longy School of Music of Bard College (MA) in Bay Minette, has helped me to prepare for my future. My father and mother are really also tutors and they shared with me about this blog post as a result of reading Giraffes Can’t Dance. Many thanks
