Producing radical journalism requires radical action. That includes self-care.
To that end, the staff of MLK50: Justice Through Journalism is taking a break this week to rest and regroup. We will return on March 13 and the newsletter will resume March 20. During our downtime, our social media will be silent and no stories will be published on our website.
In the meanwhile, we welcome you to catch up on some of the things we’ve done in the last few months:
- Watch reporter Brittany Brown on the Laura Flanders show talking about police violence.
- Here’s founder Wendi C. Thomas on MSNBC with Ali Velshi, talking about the Tyre Nichols case; you can listen to her have a deeper conversation on Vox’s Today, Explained podcast.
- Renters should see the live event housing reporter Jacob Steimer hosted and read his five takeaways.
- Check out our chief strategy officer Andrea Faye Hart as she helps to change philanthropy at the Knight Foundation’s Media Forum.
- Listen to the powerful offering by Memphis singer Kelli Gates ahead of the protest of Tyre Nichols on February 4. Her rendition of “Stand Up” was recorded by visuals editor Andrea Morales.
