Topic: Interview with New York Times Magazine’s Nikole Hannah-Jones

Nikole Hannah-Jones is one of the country’s most respected and influential voices on issues of race and education. She was named a 2017 MacArthur Genius Grant Fellow (one of only 24 people chosen globally) for “reshaping national conversations around education reform” and for her reporting on racial resegregation in our schools. She’s won a Peabody, a Polk and in 2017 a National Magazine Award for her story on choosing a school for her daughter in a segregated city. She was in NC this week to kick off Color of Education, a new initiative aimed at addressing racial equity issues in NC schools.
