Northwestern University’s Center on Media and Human Development is holding a day-long conference in Washington, D.C. to explore the implications of racial and ethnic differences in media use among children and youth. African American and Latino youth consume an average of four hours more media every day than White children do, especially TV, music, and video games. And over the past ten years, differences in young people’s media consumption by race have grown dramatically.
