UT Arlington Maverick Speakers Series: Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
Husband-and-wife duo Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn combine journalism and activism in their unique brand of reporting centered on human rights abuses and advocacy. As a couple, the pair received a Pulitzer in journalism for their coverage of China’s Tiananmen Square democracy movement, making them the first married couple to receive the honor. Their co-written novels include China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power and the best-selling Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Kristof is a columnist for The New York Times and WuDunn is a business executive and entrepreneur.
An audience Q&A and book-signing will follow after the lecture.
