Off the Page: A CONVERSATION WITH MARIA HINOJOSA

October 12, at 7:00 pm

Free – $10

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.

Los casi treinta años de carrera de María Hinojosa como periodista incluyen reportajes para PBS, CBS, WGBH, WNBC, CNN, NPR, y su trabajo como presentadora y productora ejecutiva del programa ganador del premio Peabody, Latino USA, distribuido por NPR. Es una invitada frecuente en MSNBC y ha recibido varios galardones, entre ellos cuatro Emmys, el premio Walter Cronkite por excelencia en periodismo, dos premios Robert F. Kennedy y el premio Edward R. Murrow del Overseas Press Club. En 2010 fundó Futuro Media, una organización independiente sin fines de lucro que tiene la misión de producir contenido multimedia desde la perspectiva POC, es decir, de la gente de color. A través de su amplio trabajo y como copresentadora fundadora del podcast político In The Thick, Hinojosa ha informado a millones de personas sobre el cambiante panorama cultural y político en los Estados Unidos y en el extranjero. María vive con su familia en Harlem, Nueva York.
