Malkia Cyril's Biography

Malkia Amala Cyril is a 30-year-old queer black writer, organizer and media strategist. A working-class Brooklyn native, Malkia has worked with racial and economic justice youth, community, and activist groups in the SF Bay Area for the past nine years. As Director of the Center for Media Justice and co-founder of the Media Justice Network, Malkia's goals are to build the strategic communications capacity of the progressive movement to move a racial/economic justice agenda, and to build the power of youth and other marginalized communities to hold corporate media accountable for biased content and policy. She believes that communications is a human right and should not be for sale. Malkia was recently featured in the documentary Outfoxed, and is primary author of numerous articles and studies including Speaking for Ourselves and Is KMEL The People's Station? (YMC, 2001 and 2002).
