The Power of the Pen: Garang John, Edward R. Murrow Participant
Garang John of South Sudan shares his personal story as a journalist on the Edward R. Murrow Program.
Each year, more than 75 journalists from around the world are brought to the United States to explore this ideal and U.S. efforts to maintain and encourage such freedom of expression through the Edward R. Murrow exchange program. The participants are emerging professionals in print, broadcast, and digital media who come to the United States to examine the rights and responsibilities of a free press in a democracy while observing the operational practices, standards, and institutions of the media.
