Presentation of the Cecilia Vaisman Award and conversation with the winner Angélica M. Casas.

Angélica M. Casas is a bilingual journalist telling visual stories for BBC News. She travels throughout the US and Latin America reporting on the effects of policy on underrepresented communities, the coronavirus pandemic, fronteras and immigration. As a "one-woman band," she produces, films, animates and edits her own videos and short documentaries. In front of the camera, you can catch her presenting explainer videos, hosting the BBC’s Facebook Watch show “Cut Through the Noise” or reporting for World News America or World Service Radio. 

Her English and Spanish work has also appeared in PBS Newshour, AJ+, KQED, the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News.

The Cecilia Vaisman Award honors the legacy of late Medill Associate Professor and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) member Cecilia Vaisman, an audio journalism leader who inspired countless students to pursue careers in video and audio journalism.
