Soledad O'Brien's name is synonymous with committed, in-depth journalism on topics that don't always receive such treatment in mainstream media — topics like race and poverty in America.

But who is the woman behind the reporting? O'Brien's own life is fascinating: full of stories about the challenges and triumphs on the road to becoming one of the country's most respected journalists.

For this episode of Alt.Latino, O'Brien joins us for a thought-provoking conversation — and brings her own musical picks.
