News and the Populist Movement - Real and Fake via Ann Arbor and Detroit
We will start with a visit to the UM’s Wallace House, home of the 44 year old Knight-Wallace Fellowship program for mid-career journalists. Mr. John Shields, Commissioning Editor of “Today” at BBC Radio 4 (London, England), a 2017-18 Fellow, will discuss his work on addressing and mitigating the loss of public trust in broadcast media. Discussion, questions and answers will follow. OLLI members will travel to Detroit for lunch at the newly re-opened Historic Caucus Club, then visit the Free Press Building. At the Free Press, we will have the special opportunity to observe their daily editorial meeting where decisions are made. There will be a time for Q & A and a tour of a few select areas in the building. This will be followed by a narrated bus tour - we’ll visit and hear about the area of the Tuxedo Project, a non-profit effort by Free Press editor Stephen Henderson and Marygrove College to re-purpose his childhood home into a literacy center.Refund Policy: No cancellations after October 10. A release form is required for this trip and will be mailed out to registrants by the OLLI office.
