Michele Norris: “Race and Poverty in the United States”
Co-Host of NPR's newsmagazine All Things Considered, Michele Norris has a voice that is undeniably recognizable. Recently named one of “25 Most Influential Black Americans” by Essence magazine, Norris's work on The Race Card Project was honored with The Peabody Award, one of the most prestigious honors in broadcast journalism. In 2010, Norris published her first book, The Grace of Silence: A Memoir, focusing on how America talks about race. Bringing more than two decades of experience leading news and weighing in on American culture, Norris will speak about “Race and Poverty in the United States.”
