Dear Ms. Goffan:
This October, CNN will extend its acclaimed “In America” series of documentaries with a two-night, four-hour event, Latino in America. Reported by anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien, the ambitious documentary initiative examines the growing diversity of America, revealing insight into a changing nation on the eve of the U.S. census that is expected to officially confirm that Latino Americans are the largest minority group within the country. Latino in America will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 21, and Thursday, Oct. 22, 2009 at 9pm ET/PT.
CNN is hosting a private advance screening of an abbreviated version of the documentary on Monday, October 19 at 7 PM at Woodruff Arts Center’s Rich Theatre, located at 1280 Peachstree St., NE in Atlanta, GA 30309.
We would be honored to have you participate in a panel discussion following the screening.
Here is how the evening’s activities will unfold:
6:00 PM VIP Reception
6:30 p.m. Guest check-in begins
7:00 p.m. Advance screening of “Latino in America”
8:00 p.m. Panelist introductions and discussion about the program/reactions from the audience
9:00 p.m. Panel discussion ends
Panel discussion format:
Soledad O’Brien (CNN) will moderate the panel discussion, posing the initial questions to the panelists and then inviting questions from the audience at this private screening event. There will be 3-4 panelists on stage together, all community leaders like you, who represent different walks of life (for example, academic institutions, community organizations, elected officials).
We hope you will join us as a panelist for this event. If you have any questions about the advance-screening event or the panel discussion, please do not hesitate to contact me at 323-404-4854 or via email at Gabriel@reyesentertainment.com
