When a journalism ethics expert, a spoken word artist, a Muslim leader and Bubba “the Love Sponge” Clem get together, there’s a pretty good chance it’s not for a game of Monopoly.

Race, Gender and Media, Post-Imus will be held Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Campus Activities Center at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

In the wake of the Don Imus controversy, the Tampa Bay Association of Black Journalists is staging the town hall meeting Thursday to discuss where to go from here. Few people are in a better position to help answer that question than Clem, the former WXTB-FM 97.9 98 Rock shock jock who now has his own show on Sirius satellite radio.

Other panelists include USF journalism professor Jay Black, spoken word poet L.I.F.E. and Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
