Minority Media Council Announces Broadband And Social Justice Summit

 

 
 
 
Washington, DC. - Putting their respective differences aside, fifty federal
administrators, corporate leaders, civil rights veterans and influential policy
bloggers will gather to discuss critical issues surrounding broadband literacy,
journalism in broadband and closing the Digital Divide at the inaugural
MMTC Broadband and Social Justice Summit on January 21-22, 2009 at
Howard University’s Blackburn Center in Washington, DC. Former FCC
Commissioner Tyrone Brown will guide a roundtable organized in the
collaborative format pioneered on PBS with Fred Friendly in a thoughtprovoking
exchange of ideas, opinions and perspectives.
 
Among the top policymakers confirmed to be part of this unique event are
FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, Filmmaker and actor Robert Townsend,
Congressman Bobby Rush, NTIA Director Larry Strickling, FCC Broadband
Initiative Director Blair Levin, FCC Wireless Bureau Chief Ruth Milkman and
LULAC Executive Director Brent Wilkes. Noted African American policy
bloggers Wayne Bennett (the Field Negro), Angela Benton (BlackWeb2.0),
Richard Prince (Journal-isms) and Navarrow Wright will infuse the discussion
with their positions on the issues from the ground up.
 
MMTC invites students, policy advocates, educators and members of the
public to join in and witness this unique dialogue. For the agenda and
registration, go go at http://mmtconline.org/?page_id=257. There is an
MMTC rate at the Madison Hotel (202-862-1600) for those traveling from out
