A conversation about undocumented America

 Jose Antonio Vargas is the 2017-2018 Morse Chair and a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. In 2011, he published a story in the New York Times Magazine titled “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” Since then, he has devoted himself to changing the cultural and policy conversations about immigration through filmmaking and activism.  His organization, Define American is a non-profit media and culture organization that uses the power of story to transcend politics and shift the conversation about immigrants, identity, and citizenship in a changing America. This conversation with Vargas will be moderated by Chris Chávez (School of Journalism and Communication).
