Please join The Maynard Institute for an afternoon of conversation with pioneering black journalist Dorothy Gilliam.

Dorothy will discuss her newly released memoir "TRAILBLAZER: A Pioneering Journalist's Fight to Make the Media Look More Like America."

Dorothy was the first black female journalist at The Washington Post and a co-founder of the Maynard Institute. She will explain some of her challenges covering stories in the segregated South during the 1960s, including James Meredith's integration of Ole Mississippi. She will also speak about her coverage of black communities in the South during the Jim Crow Era, giving voice to a voiceless community.

Dorothy was recently interviewed on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah."

This conversation will be moderated by Maynard Institute Co-Executive Director Martin G. Reynolds.
