Guns Don't Kill People, The Media Kills People

Event Description:
A Ford Hall Forum event.

Featuring John Rosenthal (gun owner and Founder/Chairman of Stop Handgun Violence) and Charlton McIlwain (Associate Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication, NYU Steinhardt). Moderated by Edward Powell (Executive Director, The Boston Foundation's StreetSafe Boston).

The media shapes how we see things, even when we know the truth is otherwise. After all, why is the national conversation on guns framed as "pro-gun vs. anti-gun" despite most of our perspectives being much more nuanced? Moderator Edward Powell shines a spotlight on how the media's distortion of reality exacerbates gun violence. He speaks with John Rosenthal and Charlton McIlwain to identify how TV, internet, and newspaper reporting paints an inaccurate picture of guns' effects on communities of color and engages in fear-mongering that fails to prevent further tragedies.

Presented by the Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University. Reserve your tickets here. For more information, please visit
