Inspiring, authentic, full of great advise for students on a host of career building issues that stressed the importance of grit and integrity and ethics. Especially insightful on issues related to covering stories about communities you may have a built in point of connection with and those which require that you approach with humility and openness and respectful listening without judging. Telling students unsure about how to cover a story across the racial divide to take a page from the Civil Rights Movement reporters (mostly white and from the Northeast) when covering today's issues across the racial divide today was inspired. Normally the civil rights movement is discussed in terms of how to build a social justice movement. Seldom do we hear about how it can be instructive to journalists covering race today. He deftly addressed the fear of offending or being awkward that many contemporary students feel given the polarization on many levels in our society, with a concrete model of how one learns what one doesn't know from our nations past. Today we have insufficient but greater diversity so students could also take a page from Charles Blow's playbook on how to prep for the job, by shadowing a reporter of color (for free and to learn) the way Blow did at the Detroit Free Press when he described his approach as doing two jobs--the unpaid learning part and the paid doing part where he got to practice what he was learning. He basically created his own apprenticeship. He learned best practices from the reporters he identified as the best there. And his lessons about voice in writing and the need to focus on humanity were nuanced and laced with evidence of how he does this not just empty platitudes. His wisdom comes at at time when it is so sorely needed. The book he is working on could not come at a more urgent time. Thank you for bringing him to UT.

Very inspiring, however I would have like to have heard more about how the Latina women faced the challenges associated with being a Latina Women in this society. I want to know how they faced the barriers that I, as a Latina women, have experienced myself.
