Special Guest: Jimmie Briggs

For the last two decades, this award-winning journalist and human rights leader has been revealing the struggles of children and youth, domestically and abroad–especially boys navigating the journey to manhood in the world today.

A National Magazine Award finalist and recipient of honors from Barnard College, National Association of Black Journalists, Women’s eNews, and the Carter Center for Mental Health, Jimmie has produced seminal reporting from across the globe on the lives of war-affected youth, children soldiers, and survivors of sexual violence. He revealed even more in his 2005 book, Innocents Lost: When Child Soldiers Go To War, after which he was named United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and Special Envoy to Children in Armed Conflict. He also serves on New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s Commission on Gender Equity. Quoted from Fresh Speakers.
