A Different World: Media Images of Race and Class. Annual Children and the Media Conference Report (5th, Stanford, California, May 6-8, 1998).
Children Now, Oakland, CA.
Children Now, with the UCLA Center for Communication Policy and Stanford University, hosted the fifth annual Children and the Media Conference. The conference focused on the intersections among race, class, children, and the media. This report highlights the thinking of participating executives, producers, writers, advocates, academics, and children, and parallels the conference structure. Each of five panels is featured; brief "panel perspectives" precede a sampling of quotes, insights, and suggestions from moderators, panelists, keynote speakers, and young people. Snapshots of research data commissioned by Children Now are included along with recommendations for future action. The five panels are: (1) "Black, White and Rich All Over? Messages Entertainment Television Sends Children"; (2) "True Stories: Television, Reality, and Children's Beliefs"; (3) "From the Newsroom to the Living Room: How Media Influence Public Policies Concerning Children"; (4) "Shaping Our Children's Future: The Power and Potential of Media"; and (5) "I'm Still Looking for Me: The Voices of Young People."
