Soledad O'Brien Keynote Speaker at The University of the Pacific

CNN's Soledad O'Brien spoke at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California on February 3, 2010. The covered the speech:

Soledad O'Brien made those points, mixing humor, her own childhood, experiences from around the globe as a TV journalist and insight into the human condition Wednesday night in delivering University of the Pacific's Black History Month keynote address. She pointed repeatedly to the unselfish leadership style of King.

"Leadership is about making the greater good more important than individual recognition," the 43-year-old O'Brien said. "For King, there was no 'us' and 'them.' It was just 'us.' "


O'Brien's appearance in Stockton followed a reporting assignment from earthquake-devastated Haiti, a place she will return to later this month.

"Haiti is living history," she said, pointing to the island nation's troubled past as well as its current crisis. "I've been surprised by the Haitians. I've been forced to think differently. I've been surprised by the lack of violence. I've never felt unsafe."
