How would the trajectory of young journalists' careers be different if they knew exactly what they were walking into? While students are taught the fundamentals of writing a lede, working a source, and filing public records requests, are they prepared to handle protests, riots, and social justice movements? With newsrooms lacking in diversity, are journalists prepared to spot implicit bias in news coverage, and when they do, will they know how to speak up? The University of Alabama Journalism Professor George Daniels and investigative news reporter Crystal Bui will engage in a transparent dialogue on underrated lessons in the classroom that have become vital in the field: Safety while reporting, Editorial implicit bias, Newsroom sexism and racism. Crystal Bui is an Emmy-nominated television news reporter. She has reported on some of the biggest stories of the decade including George Floyd's murder and the aftermath of the Atlanta spa shootings, where eight people were killed including six Asian women. She is the author of "More To Tell." The memoir unveils the moments after George Floyd’s murder, the men responsible, and the turbulent experience of an Asian female news reporter in a traditionally white, male-dominated industry.
