Ava Thompson Greenwell has taught broadcast writing, reporting and producing classes at Medill/Northwestern University since 1993. In addition to her teaching duties, she has held several administrative posts including associate dean for curriculum, director of the Teaching Television Program, co-curator for the nationally recognized Ida B. Wells award and director of the McCormick Tribune Fellows Program. Currently, she serves as co-director of the South Africa Journalism Residency Program.
We talk about “Mandela in Chicago,” the documentary film Ava produced and directed about the city’s anti-apartheid movement; her new book Ladies Leading: The Black Women Who Control Television News; and the story of an experience her son had with the police in the town where they live, that traumatized the whole family -- and what they decided to do about it.
