Parachute journalism, sending reporters from western countries into Black and brown communities globally, is a foundational and institutionalized norm in journalism. It also leads to coverage of communities and countries from the perspective of "us" and "them", some of those conversations rooted in our histories of colonialism. What place should parachute journalism, if at all, occupy in the global conversation about journalism (and colonialism)? What lessons have we learned from mainstream coverage that can support the (re)building of newsrooms to move away from that type of journalism?
