Caribbean American Women in Media: In Honor of Gwen Ifill

Join us for Caribbean American Women in Media: In Honor of Gwen Ifill

The Caribbean Women In Media is in honor of the late Gwendolyn Ifill who broke barriers for all women. She was an American Peabody Award-winning journalist, television newscaster, and author. In 1999, she became the first woman of African descent to host a nationally televised U.S. public affairs program with Washington Week in Review.[3] She was the moderator and managing editor of Washington Week and co-anchor and co-managing editor, with Judy Woodruff, of PBS NewsHour, both of which air on PBS.

Ifill was a political analyst and moderated the 2004 and 2008 vice-presidential debates. She authored the best-selling book The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.

What is more unique about Ms. Ifill was that she was of Caribbean lineage, born and raised in Queens, NY. Ms. Ifill was a first-generation American of Panamanian and Barbadian parents.

  • What role might Ms. Ifill have projected into the current media climate?

  • How might the intersect of race, class, gender, and trans-nationality frame her discourse?

Our guest panelists will attempt to unfold the possibilities on how we might reimagine our voices, while we reclaim our dignity, through the lens of Gwen Ifill.

Monica Link: Multimedia Journalist, Television Host, Content Creator

Moya M. O'Connor: Founder & CEO of Caribbean Attorneys Network, Inc.

N. Patricia Arthur: Event Planning & Support, Project Coordinator
