Off the Page: A Conversation with Maria Hinojosa
Tuesday, Oct 12 at 7:00
Join us in Conversation with award-winning author and NPR journalist MARIA HINOJOSA. This is a Hispanic Heritage Month event organized in collaboration with the Latin American and Latino Studies program at Queens College.
Maria Hinojosa dreamt of a space where she could create independent, multimedia journalism that explores and gives a critical voice to the diverse American experience. She made that dream a reality in 2010 when she created Futuro Media, an independent, nonprofit newsroom based in Harlem, NYC with the mission to create multimedia content from a POC perspective. As Anchor and Executive Producer of the Peabody Award-winning show Latino USA, distributed by PRX, and Co-Host of Futuro Media’s award-winning political podcast In The Thick, Hinojosa has informed millions about the changing cultural and political landscape in America and abroad.
