IMA grad Marisa Holmes’ screening her documentary THE BATTLE FOR THE REAL. The landscape of new media has become a battleground over ideas. Claims of information being true or fake have shaped the nature of reality itself.

Kudos to our journalism student Kadia Goba on her selection as the second Pulitzer Center fellow from Hunter College.
Kadia will receive a $3,000 fellowship to report on the environmental crisis in Sierra Leone due to mineral excavation and deforestation. Her story will be about a grassroots movement that is using social media to crowdsource funds for seedling projects to plant trees and will be published by the Pulitzer Center upon her return. She will also attend a fellows weekend in the fall in Washington DC to meet other fellows and professional journalists. Congratulations Kadia!
