The Ithacan will be hosting a Twitter Chat in collaboration with the University of Missouri's two newspapers, The Columbia Missourian and The Maneater, from 7–8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The chat will discuss how to ethically cover topics regarding racial issues in both a campus and a broader community. We hope this collaboration will provide a dialogue between aspiring and current journalism professionals and further the conversation between the media and the public. Use the hashtag #RaceReportingICMU to ask questions and engage.
