Our guest speaker this year is Jamil Smith, Political Journalist and Contributing Writer with The Daily Beast. Distrust of the media — fueled by the criticism of elected officials — has elevated the importance of unapologetic journalists and in-depth investigators. Engage with Jamil and hear his insider perspective on the role of journalists against these unprecedented attacks. Smith will shine a light on the harsh realities of race and mass incarceration, and the media’s role in shaping the narrative and educating the public.
