All of the Center for Media Literacy”s work has its roots in Media&Values magazine. As Media&Values evolved over its 15-year history during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, it documented many issues still important and relevant today, and grew from a potpourri of interesting tidbits to a publication with extensive editorial crafting as an educational resource. Media&Values is a direct reflection of the early days of media literacy in the United States, and it provided a foundation for a national movement.

Engagement with community concerns and giving voice to marginal or alternative points of view contributes to the public good and thus is an important act of democracy. This resource was originally developed by the Japanese American Museum in conjunction with the Center for Media Literacy’s staff, Elizabeth Thoman and Jeff Share.
