SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Lynette Clemetson, domestic correspondent for the New York Times will visit Wittenberg University as a featured speaker during Women’s History Month at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 16, at the Bayley Auditorium inside the Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center. Clemetson’s talk, “Perspectives on the Press: Whose Voices Are Being Heard?” is free and open to the public.
Before joining the New York Times, Clemetson was a national correspondent for Newsweek magazine, where her feature on Oprah Winfrey graced the cover of the January 8, 2001 edition. Clemetson spent three days with Winfrey, researching her life, her career, and the impact she’s had on American women.
Clemetson’s New York Times stories have covered a wide range of issues, from the war with Iraq as a correspondent while aboard the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier, the issue of the clergy and gay marriage, and the 2004 primary campaign from the perspective of voters and campaign staff workers in several states. She has written stories on the presidential campaign that have also provided a political profile of African Americans, Arab Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans, as well as the poor.
Wittenberg’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Womyn's Center, Concerned Black Students, and the political science department are sponsoring Clemetson’s visit to campus.
