MAJRR Editorial Group
The Editorial Group of the Minority American Journal of Race and Racism (MAJRR) is a team of experienced professionals responsible for overseeing the content and direction of the journal. They work collaboratively to select articles, determine editorial guidelines, and provide critical feedback to authors. The group is committed to upholding the journal’s mission to provide rigorous analysis and commentary on issues related to race and racism in America while amplifying underrepresented voices and promoting public awareness and education. They are guided by a commitment to social justice and equity and work to ensure that the journal’s content is inclusive and representative of diverse perspectives.
As the United States grapples with widespread unrest after the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, our fraught national relationship with race is again in the spotlight.
Our Editorial Group's Perspective
At MAJRR, we believe that mainstream media has had a disproportionate impact on how society perceives minority communities. To challenge this, we provide insightful critiques of mainstream media’s news coverage, encouraging readers to view these issues through a new lens.
Our mission is to foster greater understanding and dialogue around race and racism and to broaden the conversation around who tells the stories of minority Americans. We welcome diverse viewpoints and believe that achieving radical change often requires a radical voice.
We also believe that it’s not enough to just criticize and analyze the media – we must also work towards tangible change. That’s why we partner with scholars, activists, and policymakers to promote policies and actions that address systemic racism and inequality. We also offer fellowships and other opportunities to support emerging voices in the field, with a particular focus on amplifying the voices of historically marginalized groups. Our goal is to create a more just and equitable society, where everyone’s stories are valued and heard. We invite you to join us in this mission and be part of the change we want to see in the world.
