The award-winning journalist is hoping to conjure up some serious debate and action with her newest Black in America project titled “Great Expectations”.
The documentary will examine the disparities that currently exist within America’s public education system by spotlighting a group of young black boys in a low-income area of Minneapolis. She also speaks with several educational experts about the controversy surrounding the charter school system and what can be done to close the achievement gap within the African-American community.
The documentary is set to air on CNN Friday, August 30th. This will be her sixth installment in the Black in America series.
Although O’Briean no longer works at CNN, she continues to freelance for a variety of networks through her own production company, Starfish Media Group.
