Combating Misinformation about Democracy

Howard University was awarded a $250,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support new research on how digital manipulation and disinformation on the internet impacts Black communities. The grant is part of a series of investments by the Knight Foundation to support research on the rules, norms, and governance of the internet and social media platforms. Under the leadership of researchers Bahiyyah Muhammad, Ph.D., Roger Caruth, Ph.D., Ravi Perry, Ph.D., Brandon Hogan, Ph.D. and Keesha Middlemass, Ph.D., the research team is investigating how technology and misinformation on social media is used in the digital age to misinform members of the Black community in Washington, D.C. The idea for this research came after reports of continuing Russian interference in U.S. elections and amid the growing spread of misinformation on social media.
