Napalm Girl Guest Speaker Event

Photojournalist Nick Ut's iconic 1972 Vietnam War photo of 9-year-old Kim Phuc, 'Napalm Girl,' hugely influenced public opinion and won the Pulitzer Prize, but his work doesn't end there. An AP photographer for over 51 years, he collaborates frequently with Raul Roa at the LA Times community news, and together the two award-winning photojournalists mentor and speak all over the world as advocates for photojournalism, a free press, storytelling through journalism, and the impact that every person can have on their community and the world. At the SMSU Theater Oct. 9 at Noon, Ut and Roa displayed a few of their pieces and speak with students FREE about their experiences as photojournalists and as engaged citizens.
