Journalists and students learn how to report on the issues important to diverse communities with the tips in this valuable handbook. Beginning with a discussion on what diversity means and why it is important, the textbook provides a detailed roadmap for teaching and learning about diverse communities and suggestions for beginning what is often a difficult community conversation. Hundreds of professional tips demonstrate how to better cover multicultural communities with individual chapters on specific audiences, including African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Arab Americans, gay men and lesbians, people with disabilities, and people of varying faith, age, and economic class. Activities for teaching and learning about diverse communities help journalists and educators bring the issue of diversity into the newsroom and classroom. Newly updated, this edition reveals statistics from the 2010 U.S. Census and includes a Divesity Dictionary containing hundreds of useful mutlicultural terms and definitions.
