Community Connection is a video series that highlights the different people and organizations in our community. Each episode, Mayor Bruce Teague interviews guests about a variety of issues that are important to our residents.

How does the media shape racial issues and influence our beliefs? In this episode Dr. Venise Berry, Associate Professor in Journalism and African American Studies at the University of Iowa, explores a more nuanced understanding of racial constructions in popular media.
