Journalists of Color Part of “Undercover” Database

New York University has launched a database chronicling undercover journalism dating back to the 1800s,” the university announced on Monday.

“The archive, ‘Undercover Reporting,’ includes an array of stories, ranging from the slave trade in 1850s to efforts to boycott Jewish-owned businesses in the U.S. in the late 1930s to treatment of soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in the 21st century.”

The database,www.undercoverreporting.org, is a joint endeavor of Professor Brooke Kroeger of NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and the university’s Division of Libraries . . . ”
