Netflix and Newsrooms: Diversity, Religion, and American Media


For too long, minority groups have been overlooked in art and media. They have been underrepresented and misrepresented, resulting in negative biases and stereotypes. The tide is starting to shift, and yet, as many aspects of inclusion and representation push forward, attention to religious diversity lags behind. Accurately portraying the full spectrum of American religious diversity in our Netflix series, newsrooms, museum galleries, and novels is not getting the buzz and attention it deserves. Join Aspen Institute Religion & Society Program Executive Director Simran Jeet Singh for a conversation on the current state of religion and media, visions for its future, and the challenges we must overcome to get there.
