Hurricane Maria. The Pulse Nightclub massacre. Charlottesville. Philando Castile. Uproar over racism at the University of Missouri. Adrián Florido (Code Switch) has spent much of his time at NPR reporting on the aftermath of traumatic events in communities of color.

In his 2019 Third Coast Conference session, he spoke about the importance of reporting on people’s pain while avoiding narratives that often strip brown and black people of agency and power.
