➡️ One-on-one with mayoral candidate Daniella Levine Cava

Janey Tate of Hy-Lo News takes over The New Tropic every other Monday to share what’s popping in Miami-Dade’s Black communities.

🍵 What Janey and Hy-Lo News are talking about

What Miami news story are you following right now?

I’m always following what’s on Hy-Lo News, my hyper-local online news site dedicated to urban millennials in South Florida. One story features Black Men Build (BMB), an organization that’s asking for 1,500 Black men to help protect people at the polls this election season.

What Miami news story do people need to be paying more attention to?

Miami’s only historically Black university, Florida Memorial University, is having issues fighting the coronavirus on its campus. Hy-Lo News reported on some of the drama involving their new head football coach, but according to the Miami Times, the school has fired its athletic director and closed the campus due to a spike in COVID-19 cases.

What’s your favorite project you’re working on right now?

Right now I’m assembling an election season series with interviews and columns about the importance of this election to the Black community and millennials. I recently spoke with Miami-Dade mayoral candidate Daniella Levine Cava; we discussed how her proposed policies would stand to benefit both demographics. Plus, we got personal to learn what she’s watching, what’s on her playlist, and hear about her favorite soul food restaurant in Miami.

What’s your favorite piece you wrote this week?

I’m proud of the piece I wrote detailing my views on how the Miami Herald has covered Miami Gardens over the years. In response to the news outlet’s recent profile of the predominantly Black city, I broke down how the Herald has not always been balanced in its coverage of Miami Gardens. I also discuss why it’s important for mainstream media to not only report the negative happenings in a city and how their lack of balanced coverage feeds into systematic racism.

The New Tropic depends on readers like you to do what we do best.

🖼 The Wolfsonian: A Legacy 25 years in the making

✅ 50,000 sq. feet of galleries and program space

✅ Countless opportunities for learning and exploring

The Wolfsonian–FIU is looking to be even more deeply embedded into the fabric and character of our community. Starting in 2021, an expansion project for the Miami Beach museum will be underway.

Since opening to the public in 1995, The Wolfsonian has grown to incorporate donations from hundreds of cultural stewards who together share a singular vision: preserve the overlooked, ask tough questions, and tell stories through objects.

Now with more than 200,000 objects, their collection contains a vast universe of ideas for us to enjoy.
