#16 – Nicholas Kristof on

Covering the World for
the New York Times

A Career in Journalism

Nicholas Kristof has spent a career in journalism telling stories from places that few of his readers have ever been, and few would otherwise notice. The longtime New York Times columnist was among the first and most persistent voices to call the world’s attention to genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan in the mid-2000s, and has been a prominent voice in highlighting the global plague of human trafficking. Kristof spoke at the January Series of Calvin College. He sat down with Karen Saupe before he took the stage.

Nicholas Kristof is a columnist for the New York Times. He has won two Pulitzer Prizes, including one with his wife, journalist Sheryl WuDunn, with whom he has also authored four best-selling books, including Half the Sky and A Path Appears.

Karen Saupe is professor of English at Calvin College.
