Charlottesville Inclusive Media Project

Charlottesville Inclusive Media project

Vinegar Hill Magazine, an independent African American-owned for profit publishing company; In My Humble Opinion Talk Show, an African American female-owned digital production company and talk radio show; and Charlottesville Tomorrow, an INN member nonprofit public service newsroom have come together to for the Charlottesville Inclusive Media Project. The partnership between a nonprofit public service news organization and two established independent Black-owned media companies offers a powerful model for flagship university towns and cities across the South that suffer from the same widespread mistrust of local news among African Americans at a time when many local governments are making far-reaching decisions to address disparities. The Charlottesville Inclusive Media Project is creating strong structures that connect African American audiences and media companies to legacy local news media systems in ways that will create more equitable outcomes in local decision-making processes.
