Best of 2013: CFAM Dean Gail F. Baker Wins Third Emmy

It was a special year for UNO in 2013 with countless events, achievements, special guest visits and national recognitions for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media's Dean Gail F. Baker took home her third Emmy Award for a feature-length documentary titled, "Colorblind: Rethinking Race."

She previously won for her writing work on two other documentaries, "Paper Trail: 100 Years of the Chicago Daily Defender" and "DuSable to Obama: Chicago's Black Metropolis."

The Omaha World Herald wrote an article on Baker, and it can be viewed here.

For more information on her win, please view the UNO homepage this afternoon.
