In November, a town hall meeting at Fisk University addressed the hot topic of media accountability and the impact of images in the urban community. On Urban Outlook, we talk about the issues and solutions discussed at the forum and how we can send a positive message to the public. WFSK Program Director (and town hall meeting organizer) Xuam Lawson and Lonnie Greenlee from Galaxy Star Drug Awareness talk about the issues at hand, who deserves the blame, and how we can move forward.
