Been a minute since I’ve posted on here, but now that grades have been submitted and the COVID-19 quarantine continues, seems as good a time as any to update the ole website. This past winter (December 2019 – February 2020) I had the opportunity to partner with award-winning religion journalist Adelle M. Banks in a series of co-reported pieces on integration and segregation in American religion, courtesy a funded media partnership between Sacred Writes and Religion News Service. Our collaboration was titled Beyond the Most Segregated Hour: Reparations, Restructuring, Relationships. At times it felt learning an entirely different language (one with “ledes” and “nut graphs”) and the start-to-finish time was dizzying compared to what we’re used to in academia (from blank page to published in 1-2 weeks!) but I am quite proud of what we produced together. And, due to a partnership with the Associated Press, our pieces got picked up all across the country!
