Drawing from her diverse experiences in K-12 education and media, as well as insights from her book 'American Negra,' this talk by journalist and MPP, Natasha S. Alford, illuminates the power of storytelling in driving meaningful policy change and social progress. Natasha will unpack the question of how public narratives evolve and what it's like to be on the front lines of battles for truth in the realms of education policy, cable network news and digital journalism.

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled with lunch* on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP student to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by Q&A.
