SPARK with Akoto Ofori-Atta :: On Journalism for Black Audiences

Join us for a conversation with Akoto Ofori-Atta, Cofounder and Chief Audience Officer of Capital B, a Black-led, nonprofit local and national news organization reporting for Black communities across the country, launching early 2022.

Akoto and Lauren Williams, formerly SVP and Editor in Chief of Vox, have teamed up to create a first-of-its kind, local-national hybrid nonprofit news organization for Black Americans: Capital B. For too long, news organizations have failed to recognize the contributions of Black Americans and address the issues facing their communities. Newsrooms are still majority white and male and this influences what news is reported and how it’s communicated.

We’re thrilled to be in conversation with Akoto and learn more about what journalism for underserved audiences can and should look like, and her journey to launch Capital B.

This event is presented in partnership with BOSS, Barnard’s Organization of Soul and Solidarity.
