This free webinar is an examination of microaggressions and begins with the story of Maxwell Pearce, Harlem Globetrotter, who experienced a very public case on live TV. During an interview, journalists threw fruit, including a banana, at him while he performed.

Moderator Neima Abdulahi, culture journalist and award-winning broadcaster, will lead the discussion. Abdulahi is an Emmy-nominated journalist in Atlanta who has carved out a niche style of storytelling that provides a unique perspective into the lives of diverse communities. Abdulahi has worked in top TV markets, most recently as an on-air journalist and content creator for Atlanta’s 11Alive News.

In addition to Maxwell Pearce, panelists include: Dr. David Ponton III, assistant professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Global Studies at the University of South Florida, and Glenn Burkins, editor of Qcitymetro and former editor for the Charlotte Observer.

Together this group will define microaggression, explain how to identify them, and ultimately how to deal with them. We will look at the role microaggressions play in isolating Black people and serving as a form of racism in and out of the news industry.
