Witnessing and Reporting Tragedy: The Student Journalists of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater (doors open at 1:30 p.m.) | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Student journalists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., recount their experiences witnessing and reporting on the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting that killed 17 of their fellow students and teachers.

During the shooting, reporters for the school’s newspaper The Eagle Eye recognized not only that they were involved in the major story but they also had a responsibility to report on it. The event thrust them into the role of being both crime victims and reporters.

Margaret Brennan, moderator of CBS News’ “Face the Nation” and CBS News’ senior foreign affairs correspondent, will lead the discussion.

The following day, the students will report from Washington, D.C., on the March 24 “March for Our Lives,” an event organized by the survivors of the shooting that calls for increased gun control and school safety measures.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

The program is free with paid admission to the Newseum, and because all Newseum tickets are valid for two consecutive days attendees can visit for free on Saturday during the “March for Our Lives.”
