Revolutionary: A Conversation with Nikole Hannah-Jones at Wesleyan

April 25 @ 5:30 pm

In these turbulent times, journalism, like democracy itself, feels more revolutionary than ever as the boundary between journalism and activism blurs.

Please join us for a conversation with Nikole Hannah-Jones, the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the 1619 Project and a staff writer at The New York Times Magazine, about journalism, social justice, and the praise and backlash that reporting provokes. Hannah-Jones has spent her career investigating racial inequality and injustice, and her reporting has earned her the MacArthur Fellowship, known as the Genius grant, a Peabody Award, two George Polk Awards and the National Magazine Award three times.

Joining her in this conversation are Tracy Heather Strain, Corwin-Fuller Professor of Film Studies, and Robyn Autry, associate professor of sociology and director of the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life. Provost and Senior Vice President Nicole Stanton will provide introductions.

This event is sponsored by the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life with support from the Wintman Family.
