Earlier this year BOP launched our first media training internship program for our members! During these intense weeks of training, we built up our communication and public speaking skills and learned more about the history of negative images of Black people portrayed in media today and historically.
As Black people it is important that we take strides to reframe the narrative. Without our perspectives , without our stories, Black people will continue to be represented in the media negatively. It is time to uplift and tell our own stories . Traditionally, storytelling is a vehicle used to pass down values, lessons, and culture. Our perspective is needed for healing and transformation. Our voices our powerful, our stories our powerful, we are powerful.
We took sometime to talk with our communications crew about their experience! Check out the video below!
