Lehman College – City Limits Journalism Collaborative

The Bronx is the seventh largest U.S. municipality by population according to the U.S. Census, yet it has minimal coverage of news and politics as a borough of New York City. This urban news desert is ignored by large mainstream media, leaving a vastly underserved population with small grassroots journalism organizations struggling to serve them. The Lehman City Limits Collaborative draws on the lived experiences of journalism students from the Bronx and the credibility and reach of an established online news operation to fill this void. This curriculum-based project prepares and equips new urban journalists to report on their neglected communities.
