Journalism Workshop: Covering Systemic Racism

April 28, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Learn from the best at this virtual program on covering institutional racism.

About this event

Please join us April 28 for a 90-minute virtual program on covering race and equity. Few issues are more pernicious than institutional racism. We invite you to learn from some of the best journalists covering these issues.

The workshop is sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists and the newly created Investigative Project on Race and Equity—a project created by Chicago Reporter alumni and supporters from around the nation who organized as Friends of The Chicago Reporter in September 2020.

The Investigative Project supports data-driven reporting, trains young journalists and collaborates with media organizations to shine a light on these issues, which are critical to the future of Chicago and the nation.

Veteran investigative journalists will conduct the workshop, including:

  • Alden K. Loury, senior editor, WBEZ’s Race, Class and Communities desk
  • Jeff Kelly Lowenstein, director, Center for Collaborative Investigative Journalism
  • Kari Lydersen, co-director, Social Justice News Nexus, Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism
  • Asraa Mustufa, digital editor, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists
  • Moderator: Josh McGhee, reporter, Injustice Watch

This is an invaluable opportunity for:

  • Reporters seeking professional development;
  • Journalism students—graduate and undergraduate;
  • Community members interested in better understanding investigative reporting.

The program will be recorded for future viewing. If you have any questions, please email Susy Schultz at
