Panel Discussion: Journalism and Human Rights
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 7 p.m.
At the Museum

Go behind the lens for an insider’s look at the role journalists play in documenting global human rights crises.

Hear from two photojournalists who have spent years photographing war-torn and conflicted countries across the globe. Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson will discuss the difficulty of remaining objective in the face of some of the worst humanitarian crises ever documented.

Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson are experienced photojournalists and the co-creators of Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq. They have covered culture and conflict from the Balkans to the Middle East, as well as here in the United States. This session will be moderated by Marcia Allert, Director of Photography for The Dallas Morning News. Before joining The Dallas Morning News, Marcia Allert worked for The Daily Beast, The New York Times, and ABC News.

This panel is presented in conjunction with the Candy Brown Holocaust and Human Rights Educator Conference and our current special exhibition, Manzanar: The Wartime Photographs of Ansel Adams.

Free. RSVP required at Eventbrite.
