Saturday at the Warwick Melrose with Alfredo Corchado
Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter’s Journey Through a Country’s Descent into Darkness

Sat, 1 Jun, 2013 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Alfredo Corchado

This program is sold-out.

After receiving a death threat from a drug cartel while in Mexico, Alfredo Corchado did not flee the country, but instead investigated the situation and wrote the story. As the Mexico bureau chief for The Dallas Morning News, Corchado routinely writes about many border topics including immigration, governmental corruption and drug violence. Although he promised his mother he would report only on immigration when he returned to Mexico in 1994, it is Corchado’s persistent coverage of the drug cartels that has earned him numerous death threats. “Someone has to tell these stories. Somebody has to know these stories," he says. "Otherwise they just become invisible faces and just a bunch of numbers."

He currently resides in Mexico City, but calls the border home. A 2009 Nieman Fellow at Harvard and a 2010 Rockefeller Fellow and Woodrow Wilson Scholar, Corchado won the Maria Moors Cabot award from Columbia Journalism School in 2007 for extraordinary bravery and enterprise.
