Indigenous News

Indigenous voices are flourishing online – and increasingly being heard in mainstream news. Has this improved white Australia’s understanding of Indigenous issues, and are black voices making any headway in challenging racism?

This panel will discuss the impact of the slow growth of Indigenous voices in Australian journalism. With Jack Latimore, Gary Foley and more.

New News is presented in partnership with the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne, and Monash University.
