Ben Taub, a contributor to The New Yorker, visited Flagler College on Oct. 24.
He gave a moving account of his coverage of migration in Africa.
Taub’s project, “We Have No Choice,” traces the journey of Blessing, a trafficked Nigerian girl who travels across the Mediterranean.
Taub completed that project and another about Syrian war crimes with support from the Pulitzer Center.
Taub’s reporting has won several major awards, including the Overseas Press Club Award for Investigative Reporting, the Livingston Award for International Reporting and the Robert F. Kennedy Award for International Print reporting.
The American Society of Magazine Editors also gave Taub its Next Award for Journalists Under 30.
