HOMETOWN: Cherry Hill, N.J. PROFESSOR: David Love CLASS: Media, Movements and Community Engagement TAKEAWAY: The Western relation to whiteness spreads issues among North American relationships with other countries. The influence alters how as a nation we cover different groups of people, directly impacting the perception of minority groups. Whiteness dives deeper into the hows and whys of these issues. With help from professors, lawyers, and historians I have been able to create this piece that showcases how current media does not accurately represent the entire population.
