Despite the winter weather, CNN journalist Soledad O’Brien delivered the 47th Hanify-Howland Memorial Lecture to an audience in the Hogan Ballroom at the College of the Holy Cross last night. 

The Telegram & Gazette was on hand to cover the event. “Ms. O’Brien has certainly witnessed a lot in recent years, and Tuesday night relayed stories of horror and humanity from her experiences reporting from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Haiti after the massive earthquake and Thailand after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami,” according to the article.

Reporter Steven Foskett writes “She talked about leaving her young children to get on a plane to Thailand after the tsunami without really giving it a second thought. Performing a public service by giving a voice to people who are suffering is ‘bigger than us,’ she said.”
