So many touching tributes came in on social media following the very sad news about our former colleague Ron Green that became hard to keep up with them.
I've made a collection here of the ones that I saw on Twitter - but it's possible I missed others. Let me know if that's the case.
It's with great sadness that we have to pass on the very sad news of the death of Ron Green, one of the Centre for Journalism's most influential and admired figures.
Ron played a central part in establishing the culture of the CfJ, joining as a newswriting teacher soon after it was founded and inspiring many cohorts of undergraduate and postgraduate students with his compassion, enthusiasm for news and lively teaching.
We know many of our students have been deeply affected by the appalling killing of George Floyd and by the anti-racism protests. Some of you have told us of issues this has made you think of regarding your experiences at the Centre for Journalism, at university and about the media in general. Thank you for all your words and thoughts, which we have been reflecting on.
We would like to begin a bigger conversation with you about how the CfJ can work to ensure that all students in BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) communities feel they belong and are fully supported at the CfJ.
We would like to invite you to an informal meeting to talk about this on Thursday 18th June at 5.30pm. The meeting will be on Zoom.
