Michel Martin Lecture
Going There: Seeking Civil Discourse in the Age of Anger
Veteran journalist Michel Martin will launch the lecture series with a keynote address exploring her work reporting on past presidential campaigns and what was different—and what was not different—about the 2016 election. She will also address the public’s declining trust in institutions and in fact-based journalism, and discuss her own techniques for fostering civil discourse. The weekend host of National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, Martin began her career working for newspapers like the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. She joined NPR from ABC News, where she had worked since 1992 and served as a correspondent for Nightline from 1996 to 2006. At NPR, Martin launched Tell Me More, a one-hour daily NPR news and talk show that aired on public broadcast stations nationwide from 2007 to 2014. Outside the studio, she hosts Michel Martin: Going There, an ambitious live event series in collaboration with member stations.
