The video for Fake News: Disentangling Truth in the Digital Age, presented by Kaufman Library and the Gwinnett County Public Library (GCPL) is now available.
Between fake news, alternative facts, biased sources, selective sharing, information bubbles, and more, how can anyone feel like they are fairly and accurately evaluating the waterfall of knowledge that deluges everyone every single day? This program will explore the history of disinformation.
Mack Freeman, branch manager for GCPL, is the presenter. Mack is the current chair of the American Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Round Table, the chair of the Georgia Library Association's Intellectual Freedom Interest Group, and a former chair of the Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association.
