IU Indianapolis Journalism Professor Jonas Bjork recent insightful article published in Swedish-American Historical Quarterly discussing how SE, a Swedish magazine with a primarily working-class audience, covered race relations in the U.S. during the civil-rights era. Coming from an ethnically homogeneous country, the magazine’s reporters struggled at times with conveying the issues facing African-Americans to their readers, and they found it easier to report on the fight for voting rights in the South than the unrest in northern cities such as Los Angeles and Newark.
