*TV/Media Critic Eric Deggans will be on hand to discuss his book “Race Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation” at Eso Won Books in Los Angeles.
In Race-Baiter, Deggans dissects the powerful ways modern media feeds fears, prejudices, and hate, while also tracing the history of the word and its consequences, intended or otherwise.
The discussion, to be held on March 28 from 7 to 9 p.m., will be followed by a conversation with noted entertainment journalist Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn, author of “SWIRLING: How to Date, Mate, and Relate Mixing Race, Culture, and Creed.” Deggans and Littlejohn will explore the importance of why the television industry needs to address issues of race and culture in today’s times.
MSN.com TV critic Mekeisha Madden Toby will serve as the moderator.
