On stage Saturday night will be several National Geographic photographers who contributed to the series of stories on race and diversity. Wayne Lawrence photographed “The Many Colors of Matrimony” and “The Stop,” a collaboration with ESPN’s The Undefeated about black and Hispanic motorists who have been pulled over by the police due to the color of their skin. Ruddy Roye and Nina Robinson photographed “A Place of Their Own,” about rising enrollment and student activism at historically black colleges and universities. Ismail Ferdous documented the growing visibility of South Asian Americans throughout American society in “Building a New American Dream”, which will appear in the September issue of National Geographic magazine. Jennifer Pritheeva Samuel, photo editor at National Geographic magazine, will moderate the discussion.

“There’s no doubt that today’s young people face enormous challenges. Still, the data tells us that they’re healthier, better educated, and have greater potential than any group of young people that’s come before—and I’m willing to bet that the generation that will transform the world into a better, more equal place has already been born. ” – @melindafrenchgates #goalkeepers18

A few weeks ago I, along with 9 other photographers and 23 reporters, were asked by @nytmag to make portraits at Central Park’s Sheep’s Meadow for their #NYTSundayInThePark print only section running this weekend. Don’t miss it!! #Repost @nytmag with @get_repost

@waynelawrence photographed friends Kyle Martin, Vib Dabas, and Alexis Garces in Sheep Meadow one sunny day in August for our #NYTSundayInThePark series. We asked them about how being openly gay in New York compares to back home, the song of the summer, and if New Yorkers were happier compared with people in other places. “Oh, my God, no. We’re so pissed! If it’s not the subway, it’s the person on the subway.”
