NYT’s Michael Slackman bears witness

Some foreign correspondents seek assignments covering the news from glamorous cities such as Paris or Rome.

Others seek to tell the stories that impact the lives of countless people affected by war, illness or famine.

At 5 p.m. on April 1, Michael Slackman of “The New York Times” comes to FIU’s Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Auditorium (SIPA 125) to show the power and the responsibilities foreign correspondents have to shed light on pivotal world events.

His discussion, “Bearing Witness,” will address how journalists have a responsibility to speak truth to power.
