Interactive video lesson plan for: 1. Covering Immigration and the Election

Activity overview:

Maria Hinojosa from Latino USA and Joshua Johnson from KQED radio discuss minority issues impacting the 2016 presidential election and the role of journalists of color. Moderated by Stanford’s Political Science professor, Gary Segura.

Maria Hinojosa:
For 25 years, Maria Hinojosa has helped tell America's untold stories and brought to light unsung heroes in America and abroad. In April 2010, Hinojosa launched The Futuro Media Group with the mission to produce multi-platform, community-based journalism that gives critical voice to the voiceless by harnessing the power of independent media to tell stories that are overlooked or under reported by traditional media.

As the anchor and executive producer of the long-running weekly NPR show Latino USA, and as anchor of the Emmy Award-winning talk show Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One from WGBH/ La Plaza, Hinojosa has informed millions of Americans about the fastest growing group in our country. Previously, a Senior Correspondent for NOW on PBS, and currently, a rotating anchor for Need to Know, Hinojosa has reported hundreds of important stories—from the immigrant work camps in NOLA after Katrina, to teen girl victims of sexual harassment on the job, to Emmy Award-winning stories of the poor in Alabama.

Joshua Johnson:
Joshua Johnson has been the Bay Area’s trusted guide for in-depth and breaking regional news on KQED’s “Morning Edition” since he joined the station as its morning newscaster in 2010. Joshua’s versatility has led him to take on other important roles at the station, including hosting KQED’s morning talk show “Forum,” anchoring our weekly television show “KQED Newsroom,” and anchoring award-winning live breaking news coverage.

Joshua came to KQED from WLRN in his native South Florida, where he was an anchor/reporter for six years. There he helped to launch WLRN Miami Herald News, an innovative partnership between WLRN Public Radio and The Miami Herald. He was a frequent contributor to NPR newscasts, CBS Radio News, American Public Media's """"Marketplace,"""" and PRI's """"The Takeaway.""""

Before working in public radio, Joshua was a weekend assignment editor for WPEC-TV in West Palm Beach, his hometown, and for WTVJ-TV in Miami. He also worked for WPBT-TV in Miami, developing a young adults' personal finance initiative for “Nightly Business Report.” Joshua is active with the National Association of Black Journalists and with SAG-AFTRA, the union representing a wide array of content professionals.
