CMF: Knatokie Ford and Baratunde Thurston

The Annenberg Innovation Lab is prototyping a Civic Media Fellowship. We asked leaders and friends in this space to interview each other about their work in civic media, and what they were excited about for this fellowship. In this interview, Dr. Knatokie Ford, former Senior Policy Advisor at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Baratunde Thurston, Futurist Comedian, Writer, and Cultural Critic, talk about their names, their identities, how they model civic participation and what they’d like to see in the future.
