Change the Narrative:
Depictions of African-American Women
in Advertising & Media


Panel Discussion
December 7, 2017 | SapientRazorfish | Atlanta

In 2017, the AAF and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. commissioned a study, performed by the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, on the effects advertising, news, reality television and other media have on the perceptions of African-American women. The results of the study will be released in a topline report. 

Hear from distinguished panelists and participate in a discussion on the research findings. Our goal is to use the research to facilitate institutional changes in the way African-American women are depicted in the media and to develop guidelines for critical thinking in order to assist consumers in discerning content. #changethenarrative
