Emmy award-winning journalist Sandra Guzman to speak Oct. 25

Sandra Guzman, an Emmy award-winning journalist and former editor-in-chief of Latina Magazine, will speak at Wake Forest University at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 in Benson University Center’s Pugh Auditorium. The Wake Forest Office of Multicultural Affairs is sponsoring the event in recognition of Latin Heritage Month. It is free and open to the public.

Guzman’s presentation is titled “Diversity Beyond Black and White: The Latino Factor.”

Latina Magazine was the first national, glossy, bilingual lifestyle magazine targeting Hispanic-American women. While Guzman was editor of the magazine, circulation doubled.

Before working at Latina Magazine, Guzman was a producer for Fox Television’s “Good Day New York.” She also worked at Telemundo, where she won an Emmy Award for a 30-minute special on the Cuban embargo.

Guzman recently wrote a self-help book for Hispanic women titled “The Latina’s Bible: A Nueva Latina’s Guide to Love, Sex, Spirituality and la Vida.” She is also a board member of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Board on Latino Initiatives.
