Journalism Speaker Series Continues with Jacqueline Charles

By Tacara Turner

Jacqueline Charles, award-winning Miami Herald foreign correspondent, will be the next guest speaker at the Miami Dade College Journalism Speaker Series on Jan. 25.

The event will take place at 11 a.m. in Room 2158 at North Campus, 11380 NW 27th Ave. It is free and open to the public.

Earlier this year Charles was named Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists for her coverage of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

Charles started at the Miami Herald as a high school intern and was hired after she graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Charles, who was born in the English-speaking Turks and Caicos Islands, was raised in part in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood by a Haitian mother and a Cuban-American stepfather. 

In 2006 Charles officially became part of the Miami Herald World Desk. Her main responsibilities are Haiti and the English-speaking Caribbean. Her beats at the Herald have included Broward County schools and government and social services. 

Charles’ presentation will be followed by a 15 minute question-and-answer session.
