Michele Norris, eminent American broadcast journalist, became the first African-American female host in the history of National Public Radio, serving as anchor of its flagship evening news program All Things Considered from 2002 to 2015.
Previously, she served as an ABC News correspondent, winning both the Emmy and Peabody awards for her coverage of the 9/11 attacks. In 2014, she received a second Peabody for her NPR Race Card Project, which invites listeners to comment on matters of race in exactly six words. She is also the author of the memoir, The Grace of Silence (2010), which Toni Morrison called, "an insightful, elegant rendering of how the history of an American family illuminates the history of our country." There will be a reception with light refreshments in the Patroon Room from 5:30-6:45 p.m. before the program begins.
