This year, NYC Media, in partnership with TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, will premiere an exciting new program that will bring TED Conversations from the Internet to television. Jami Floyd hosts "Ted Talks in NYC" and brings in exciting new voices, from the New York City area, to help deconstruct and debate the most popular topics the Technology Entertainment and Design community have to offer.
The Innocence Network Journalism Award was created to honor investigative reporting that brings to life the process of identifying and exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals. The winner of the award will be an article, program, or series that in discussing wrongful convictions: best demonstrates the failures and successes of the criminal justice system; provides the best account of the plight of the wrongfully convicted, whether while in prison or after they are released; and/or best highlights the reforms needed and, where appropriate, the ways in which the public can take action to improve the criminal justice system.
Together with WNYC’s Peabody Award-winning host Brian Lehrer, Jami will lead a dynamic forum with academics, education experts, and historians – including a plaintiff involved in the historic Brown v. Board of Education case – about the evolution of the civil rights struggle around education since King’s time, and what’s left to be done in education reform.
The invigorating afternoon will feature a musical performance by folk/blues songwriter Toshi Reagon, a musical performance from the Manhattan Theatre Lab and its ninth grade chorus, and short tribute speeches to Dr. King from the Manhattan Country School eighth graders.
