    I am ecstatic to be back in the Carolinas, and back on air! I spent fifteen years in the broadcast new business before taking a break to start a family, write a book and build a Sports Media consultancy. While I certainly enjoyed my new directions, I never lost the “bug.”

Soledad O'Brien is celebrating the first anniversary of her production company Starfish Media Group.

That reminded me of our interview from February, where she talked about how race and class are handled in Charlotte, about being multi-racial, and about digging deeper to tell stories that reveal underlying issues in our communities.

She was in town to speak at the Harvey B. Gantt Center as part of her "Black in America - Town Hall Tour."

Soledad started off reflecting on a Latino family living in Charlotte that she featured in her Latino in America documentary, where the sons were not embracing their heritage as their parents had hoped.  Take a look:

Right now, Starfish is producing documentary specials for CNN and Al Jazeera America.  See this article for more on that.
