Event Description:

Juan Williams
Fox News contributor, best-selling author and Emmy-winning documentarian

Juan Williams is a regular panelist on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace,” the weekday political newscast “Special Report with Bret Baier,” and substitute host for “The O’Reilly Factor.” His views of American politics, diversity in the workplace and changing American demographics have made him a popular choice for debates and seminars.

Williams has interacted with many American political leaders, including presidents, members of Congress and justices of the Supreme Court. His debates with conservative politicians and talking heads such as Sean Hannity and Don Imus during the 2012 presidential election landed him a place in the political limelight.

He spent 23 years at The Washington Post as a political columnist and national correspondent and 10 years at NPR.

In 1988, Williams won an Emmy for his work on “Eyes on the Prize,” a PBS documentary about the civil rights movement. He is the author of seven books and has contributed articles to several national magazines, including Time, Fortune, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic, Ebony and GQ.
