Soledad O’Brien Coming to Buffalo


If I told you that Lil Wayne and the entire YMCMB crew was coming to Buffalo, it would be broadcasted all over Facebook and Twitter. I’m sure you would already have your ticket and outfit to go with it. Well, guess who is coming to town February 16? Not YMCMB, but CNN’s Soledad O’Brien — now run and tell that!

The University at Buffalo’s 36th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration event will be Thursday, February 16, at 8 p.m. in Kleinhans Music Hall, featuring Soledad O’Brien, CNN anchor, special correspondent and author.

O’Brien is the anchor for CNN morning show “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien” and a special correspondent for CNN/U.S. Since joining the network in 2003, O’Brien has reported breaking news from around the globe and has produced award-winning, record-breaking and critically acclaimed documentaries on the most important stories facing the world today.

Her documentaries include “Words That Changed a Nation,” a never-before-seen look at King’s private writings and notes, and “Eyewitness to Murder: The King Assassination,” as well as “Don’t Fail Me: Education in America,” a look at the crisis in public education; “Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door,” a report on religious freedom protections; “Rescued,” a look at Haiti’s remarkable children before, during and after the devastating earthquake; and the “Black in America” and “Latino in America” series.

She also covers political news as part of CNN’s “Best Political Team on Television.” In 2010, she wrote a critically acclaimed memoir “The Next Big Story: My Journey through the Land of Possibilities,” which chronicles her biggest reporting moments and how her upbringing and background have influenced these experiences.

Well, I got my ticket thanks to Women in the Spotlight Going Global!

I hope you get excited about attending this as you would a Lil Wayne concert. I promise you will get a return on your investment with this. See you there!
