C-SPAN Films Migrant Caravan Presentation at CC
Did you hope to attend independent journalist Alice Driver’s presentation on the migrant caravan earlier this month and were unable to make it?
You’re in luck: C-SPAN covered Driver’s talk, titled “On the Road with the Migrant Caravan,” which was held in Gaylord Hall on Feb. 5. The entire presentation can be viewed here.
The event, sponsored by Colorado College’s Journalism Institute, was held as the nation grappled with the effects of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, sparked over a funding dispute for a wall President Donald Trump wants to build along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Driver, who was introduced by Colorado College’s journalist in residence Corey Hutchins, showed photos and spoke about her on-the-ground reporting from inside the migrant caravan. She covers migration, human rights, and gender equality, and her coverage of the border has appeared in publications such National Geographic, TIME, Longreads, and REVEAL. Driver also is the author of “More of Less Dead: Femincide, Haunting, and the Ethics of Representation in Mexico.”
