During my time at UNT, I wrote occasionally for the on campus newspaper, The NT Daily. I also worked closely with NTTV, our campus television station.  I wrote all the scripts for the packages. I shot video, conducted interviews, did research and edited footage for my stories. I was assisted by a classmate for the Youth Vote at the University of North Texas story. Below are the links to the published articles and also the news packags I completed.

Sen. Biden insults African-Americans

Olivia Sanders

Issue date: 2/8/07 Section: OPINION

I wish I had $10 for every time an Anglo-American has called an African-American articulate or well-mannered. Contrary to popular belief, many African-Americans dislike when that happens. Being articulate has nothing to do with race, but everything to do with education/socio-economic levels and a myriad of other factors.

Olivia Sanders

Issue date: 12/1/05 Section: VIEWS

Nov. 29 was World AIDS Day. I was thinking of this day on Tuesday evening and my cousin came to my mind. I miss my cousin terribly. I never really got the chance to know Ronnie. He died Jan. 19, 1994, when I was 11 years old.


Parks' legacy will stand

Olivia Sanders

Issue date: 10/27/05 Section: VIEWS

She has been called the mother of the civil rights movement. This week, we lost Rosa Louise Parks, a larger-than-life figure to people worldwide. Her 1955 refusal to give up her seat in the "colored" section to a white man would forever mark her life and legacy.

Philadelphia rapper The Ambassador was at NT earlier this month for a hip-hop forum. The forum sought to gather students to discuss the spiritual, racial and social aspects of hip hop. Some students came from as far as Baylor University to attend the forum, all because of The Ambassador. If you don't know his name, it may be because he is a Christian hip-hop artist.



Government views blacks as 'expendable'

Olivia Sanders

Issue date: 9/9/05 Section: VIEWS

I should be proud to be an American citizen. Thousands upon thousands of immigrants come to this country every year looking for the "American Dream." I should be glad of the fact that I was fortunate enough to be born in such a nation where I have freedom of expression and religion.



America must not forget the dream

Olivia Sanders

Issue date: 1/20/04 Section: VIEWS

Yesterday, our nation celebrated the birthday of civil-rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

He was a man of vision, integrity, compassion and peace. He sought to make my life and the lives of countless other Americans a better one. He wanted to change how America dealt with people of color.
