Keywords:Social Justice, Black Lives Matter, Social Movements, Race, Racism, Media
This paper is a response to the efforts made by educators, scholars, and concerned citizens on creating educational spaces that discuss State violence against young Black people. From the standpoint that the media is a salient contributor to the racial contract, this paper discusses the following: (1) the connection of the racial contract to news media; (2) the intersectionality of Critical Media Education and Critical Race Theory; and (3) the need to develop the Critical Race Media Literacy of students and citizens.
