I am in Baltimore for the next two days for the Applied Research Center’s Facing Race Conference.
I’m excited because this is a conference I have wanted to attend for a long time but never have been able to. This year I am here specifically because of my work as a community journalist in the Voting Rights Watch 2012 project but I will also be covering seeing other things that relate to what I have been doing for many years.
Tomorrow specifically I will be at the opening plenary which will try and answer the question, “now what?” that the election is over. Followed by a panel discussion looking at voting rights and what went down during the election. Then it’s off to Talking About Race: Racial Justice Through Media, Collaboration and Community Conversation. I guess the big event of tomorrow is the keynote with darling Dominicano Junot Diaz.
I will have run downs here at the end of each day but for live action play by plays, follow me on twitter @mamitamala and @vivirlatino.
