Giselle Fernandez: An Evening of True Inspiration With Elie Wiesel (Video)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When you have an evening of true inspiration that reaffirms your faith in mankind and the core courageous values that make this nation great, you just have to share it. I had such a night during my first Jefferson Awards for Public Service in Washington D.C. Their chairman, a charismatic entrepreneur and investor in Los Angeles, Joseph Sanberg, asked that I join this prestigious organization that awarded what is the equivalent of the Nobel prize for public service to the who's who of American history makers. I had not heard of it before but learned quickly of its seismic and historic significance across this nation. The Jefferson Awards were created in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft Jr. and Sam Beard to recognize national leaders who are change agents among us. Recipients include five Supreme Court Justices, Sandra Day O'Connor and Thurgood Marshall; seven Secretaries of State: Colin Powell and Cyrus Vance; Cesar Chavez, Oprah Winfrey and ...

Jose Antonio Tijerino: "How Can I Help?" The Sam Beard Question
Huffington Post - over 3 years
My friend, the multi-Emmy-winning journalist Giselle Fernandez, told me she wanted to connect me with someone that was interested in the way my organization executes our mission - especially with youth. I agreed because Giselle has a knack for connecting people with productive outcomes. In addition, I always consider it a privilege that someone wants to meet with me, even telemarketers. She mentioned his name and it didn't ring a bell but when I called, the man on the phone's voice projected an engaging-warmth garnished with the energetic timbre of a true community activist spirit. He mentioned he had his own awards program and wanted to see if there were any synergies because he loved what we were doing with youth through our Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) program and of course our Hispanic Heritage Awards at the Kennedy Center. It was a very busy day so I didn't have time to research him although I had heard of the Jefferson Awards, which is the organization he was re ...

Kate Kelly: Has the Kennedy Center Ignored Latinos?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Over the weekend The Los Angeles Times ran a story generated by two Latino organizations, the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda. The two want to create public awareness that the Kennedy Center Honors Awards largely exclude Latinos. As most Americans know, each year the Kennedy Center honors living artists who have reached the top of their profession via a lifetime of achievement. The 2012 nominees were announced earlier this month and include actor Dustin Hoffman, bluesman George "Buddy" Guy, late-night TV host David Letterman, ballerina Natalia Makarova, and the three surviving musicians from the Led Zeppelin band, keyboardist/bassist John Paul Jones, guitarist Jimmy Page and singer Robert Plant. Only two artists of Hispanic descent have been honored in the last 35 years -- Spanish tenor and conductor Placido Domingo (2000) and actress, singer, and dancer Chita Rivera (2002). This fall the Kennedy Center also a ...
