Award-winning journalist Soledad O'Brien is looking forward to serving as the University of Houston-Downtown's Spring 2021 Commencement speaker, and she sends well wishes to the soon-to-be Gator Graduates!

O’Brien has served as a reporter and producer for CNN, PBS, NBC, HBO and other major networks. Her CNN documentary series “In America” (including “Black in America” and “Latino in America”) earned critical praise and inspired speaking tours addressing race and social justice.
