I received this communication because I subscribe to their action newsletter, "Our Future Today." The conference will be assessing Obama's first hundred days. Seems interesting to me and it made me think what a good idea to call a conference of progressives to discuss the hundred days, where we stand and where we want to go. It would also be a wonderful chance for a bunch of us to get together.  

Race and New Media Conference

On Saturday May 3rd, 2008 the first annual Race and New Media conference was held at the CUNY campus of New York City College of Technology. As I sat in the conference, after purchasing my super cool “Race and New Media” tee-shirt, I slowly began to feel awestruck and mesmerized by the effect the conference held over its audience. It gave a chance for many to express their opinions and beliefs regarding race and new media, and answered many baffling questions that have currently been on many people’s minds.

My Reaction to the Race and New Media Conference

On May 3, 2008, I was one of the many students and teachers to attend the first Race and New Media conference. The conference was located on the campus of New York City College of Technology in downtown Brooklyn. There the students were given a great chance to voice their opinions, reactions, and ask questions to the professor’s arguments.
