At #Facing Race Conference in Baltimore

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.

  1. Hola Mala! I hope your time at the conference was full of postive experiences. Will you be sharing with us a reflection of your time there? I am curious to know how the conference went down. Was it exactly what you thought it would be i.e. reaffirming, surreal? Any crtiiques? Please share any knowledge with those of us who could not attend due to various reasons.

    Mil gracias,
