Erika Alexander Joins Summit On Media And Diversity Next Week On Capitol Hill

- Advertisement -

Everyone’s favorite maverick, attorney at law, also known as the quite remarkable (and beautiful) Erika Alexander recently shared a big new plan. Her company, Color Farm Media, will join the Multicultural Media Correspondents Association (MMCA) for a one-day summit “designed to bring together multicultural media stakeholders, advocates, media industry leaders and academics from across the country to Capitol Hill,” for a discussion on media diversity on July 10 at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center from 9:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

The current lineup for the summit includes Alexander, Tirrell D. Whitley, and L. Londell McMillan and will reportedly feature four panel discussions, two fireside chats, and conclude with a reception at The Capitol View at 400. Check out www.mmcadc.org for more information.

Alexander, an actress affectionately known for being everyone’s snarky attorney and friend with a massive appetite–for food and men, really is deserving of the title “maverick” in real-life. Not only is she using blockchain to make journalism more inclusive, she built a production company to make it all happen.

In a world where:

  • Approximately 75.2 percent of employees in TV newsrooms were white in 2017 (Statista)
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that Blacks made up just 13 percent of the workforce in 2018 and 7.4 percent of media occupations (BLS)
  • African-American spending power in the US is $1.2 trillion (Fortune)
  • Black women (18+) spend more time watching live TV, listening to the radio and using multimedia devices than total U.S. women. (Nielsen)

a discussion on how to increase media diversity in the new media economy is very necessary. Naturally, the efforts being made to close this gap and build communities are largely being led by Black women who understand their power.
