News Curator Darian Harvin, formerly of BuzzFeed News, wanted to create a space for people to feel good about shouting out the stuff in culture they’re into, during a time when it’s easier to riff about the things we hate. She talks to guests about their work, their lives, and how they maintain their optimism in this world. She’s interviewed everyone from Beyoncé’s publicist to writers and reporters from The New York Times, Teen Vogue, and The FADER to teachers and thought leaders on #AIATLA. At SXSW, she's speaking with Creative Director and film maker, Sama'an Ashrawi, about life growing up in Texas as a first generation Palestinian-American and working with some of Hip Hop’s legends.
