Soledad O’Brien is going back to her alma mater.  The former anchor of CNN’s now-cancelled morning show “Starting Point” was named a distinguished visiting fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, reports the Huffington Post.

Harvard said O’Brien would spend the 2013-2014 year delving into topics related to public education in America.

“On Appian Way, in the heart of the Ed School campus, a banner reads, ‘Education Is a Civil Right.’ I believe this passionately and look forward to ensuring that right is a reality by working with the students, faculty, and staff at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the rest of the Harvard University community,” O’Brien said. “This appointment is both honor and opportunity.”

O’Brien left CNN’s earlier this year, after network president Jeff Zucker announced his plans for a new program with co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan. Although O’Brien left her daily hosting gig, she said she would continue to work with the network by producing documentaries independently with her own production company.

  1. Thank you for liking the new look, bernasvibe! We are planning to write an item about it and a few new site features within the next few days — sorry if we confused you! And we agree about Ms. O’Brien – the sky’s the limit for her talent!

  2. Soledad is just getting started..Closed doors for her; only mean much bigger things to come..SO proud of her and any venture she takes on; I’ll co-sign. Didn’t realize she had her own production company(so thanks for printing this..) ; now I’ll look for things from that source. I am in full support of Black endeavors(which I think we HAVE to be to keep them afloat..i.e..look at what that did for Tyler Perry) Oooo I love the page’s new look! For a minute I thought I was on the wrong page, lol. But its brighter for sure; and I love bright & colorful. Good job!
