ZED Talk | January 16, 2022

A virtual conversation with NPR Journalist, Tom Gjelten. Religion and Racism in America. Sunday, January 16–9:30am. Online only. For nearly four decades, Tom Gjelten was a correspondent for NPR News. He retired from the network in 2021, after reporting on national and international news from posts in Washington and around the world. His latest book, A Nation of Nations: A Great American Immigration Story (Simon & Schuster), recounts the impact on America of the 1965 Immigration Act, which officially opened the country’s doors to immigrants of color. In his final assignment, Gjelten was NPR’s religion and belief correspondent, reporting on such issues as the changing religious landscape in America, the formation of personal identity, the role of religion in politics, and social and cultural conflict arising from religious differences.
