Congratulations to The Unapologetic Mexican (scroll down to donate to his scholarship fund) for his selection to the Narco News School of Authentic Journalism, just looking at the roster of recipients shows a magnificent challenge to the dominant white-male-corporate-media.
They work or hail from 24 countries across the five major continents. They investigate and write news reports, create documentary films and viral videos, and among them are up-and-coming pioneers of Internet journalism. Many of them do that through multiple forms of media. They hush the imposed silences from above and make the voices from below heard. They are aged 18 to 65, from diverse economic, social, political and demographic backgrounds. And each one’s experiences are compelling and unique.
