Know Your News is a project of Georgia Humanities. Through digital resources, conversations with journalists and other experts, and various programs, we are building a community of engaged citizens who want to be informed, more media-literate, and involved in keeping our democracy healthy.
Know Your News is part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry. We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
Georgia Humanities collaborated with the Atlanta Press Club and the Grady College of Journalism at the University of Georgia to create a media literacy guidebook, available for download here. Other collaborations include a TV broadcast with Georgia Public Broadcasting (watch the program here) and a virtual conversation with WALB-TV in Albany (watch here).
