Soledad O'Brien on Standing Up to Racism
This week’s conversation is with Soledad O’Brien, an award-winning documentarian, journalist, speaker, author and philanthropist.
She is dedicated to telling empowering and authentic stories on a range of social issues.
Soledad currently anchors and produces the Hearst Television political magazine program “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien” and she also reports regularly for HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”
She has anchored shows on CNN, MSNBC and NBC, and hosted projects for Fox and A&E.
At CNN, she was the face of CNN’s morning news shows for many years and a frequent reporter and analyst for breaking news stories and election coverage.
She also anchored the CNN documentary unit, where she created the “In America” documentary series, which includes “Black in America” and “Latino in America.”
Soledad was recognized with three Emmy awards -- for her coverage of the Haiti earthquake, the 2012 election and a series called “Kids and Race.”
So Soledad’s resume speaks for itself-- she has a deep regard for her craft and more importantly: separating right from wrong.
On the surface, this movement, these protests, they’re about highlighting the injustices, the police brutality that many African-Americans have been prone to for far too long.
But it extends further than that.
This conversation is about accountability... we all play a role.
It’s up to us whether we’re the person who chooses to actively make a difference or turn a blind eye.
