José Antonio Vargas

Movies [were] . . . my way of understanding America, and trying to kind of find myself in it.

Jose Antonio Vargas is the founder of Define American, a nonprofit media organization that seeks to open up dialogue around immigration and citizenship. He produced and directed White People, an MTV special on what it means to be young and white in contemporary America, and the autobiographical film Documented.

He has written for Rolling Stone and The New Yorker, and was a senior contributing editor at the Huffington Post, where he launched the Technology and College sections. He was part of the team that won a Pulitzer Prize for covering the Virginia Tech massacre.
