Soledad O'Brien may've caught out attention with her "Black in America" series on CNN, but the bi-racial broadcaster has done so much more during her career. Beginning as a producer more than two decades ago, O'Brien has earned her spot at the top as one of the country's best broadcasters. We're honored to have her join us at the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience on July 6-8. Here's a look back at her journey.
During her career as a news broadcaster, which spans more than two decades, O’Brien’s picked up a number of accolades including an Emmy, a George Foster Peabody award, a Gracie Allen Award and an Outstanding Anchor from the American Women in Radio & Television Gracie Allen Awards, pictured here.
