This Juneteenth event will consist of an interview with journalist Carmen Fields by former Senator Judy Eason McIntyre, followed by a question-and-answer portion with the audience.

Carmen Fields earned a bachelor’s degree from Lincoln University and studied at both Boston and Harvard University. As a reporter and columnist for the Boston Globe, she was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of Boston’s school desegregation. As a broadcaster, she has been nominated for six regional Emmy awards and has won two, one for a story on the Ku Klux Klan in Boston. In addition to her own media and public relations consulting, Fields is currently the producer and host of a monthly public affairs program on Boston’s Channel 7 called “Higher Ground.” Fields has taught journalism at multiple Universities in Boston. She also wrote and produced the PBS documentary “Goin’ Back to T-Town” (1993) about segregation in Tulsa. Fields is the daughter of famous big band leader Ernie Fields and the sister of musician Ernie Fields Jr.
