Jacqueline Charles is the Caribbean correspondent at the Miami Herald.
Guest host Patrice Peck is a freelance journalist and writes the Coronavirus News for Black Folks newsletter.
"There are things that you see that if you start taking it in, you’re never going to stop and you’re not going to be able to do your job…I have family in all of these countries and when disaster strikes, you can’t help everyone. But what you hope is that with your pen, with your voice, with your recording of history…somebody somewhere will feel compelled to do something. So that’s what keeps me going."
