The Pulitzer Center education team invites students and their teachers and parents/guardians to join us for a speaker series in which journalists highlight under-reported stories of resilience around the world. At a time when the headlines are dominated by crisis, we will explore stories of hope, joy, and connection while also learning more about how journalists investigate and communicate under-reported stories.
In this webinar, students will meet Tatenda Ngwaru, an intersex woman from Zimbabwe seeking asylum in the United States, and Robert Tokanel, a journalist who co-directed a documentary film that tells her story. Robert will share how he and co-director Yuhong Pang made "She's Not a Boy" and will screen an excerpt of the film. Tatenda will discuss her personal journey and her work advocating for intersex visibility.
While this webinar is open to all students as well as their teachers, guardians, and the public, it is recommended for grades 7 and up.
