Join Vision & Voices for a presentation by documentarians and journalists who will describe the challenges they face as women in places of conflict, and share how visual media can be maximized to create change. The panel will feature Washington Post journalist Souad Mekhennet, Thurgood Marshall Award-winning filmmaker Kirsten Johnson, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Carol Guzy, and Emmy Award-winning journalist and filmmaker Andi Gitow

Following the conversation, the audience is invited to attend a reception and viewing of Facing Survival by David Kassan at the USC Fisher Museum of Art. The exclusive exhibition, presented in partnership with USC Shoah Foundation, features Kassan’s paintings and drawings of more than a dozen Holocaust survivors, and will be supplemented by Dimensions in Testimony, an interactive interview presentation.

Souad Mekhennet is a journalist and author who covers conflicts and terrorist attacks for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other news outlets. Her memoir, I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad, was published in 2017.
