Welcome to As Told To. I’m Jewel Wicker, a freelance entertainment and culture reporter whose work has appeared in Billboard, Atlanta Magazine, Pitchfork, The Hollywood Reporter, Teen Vogue, etc. I write primarily about music, film and TV, and my hometown Atlanta, oftentimes focusing on black culture. I’m passionate about telling stories from the present and past that have often been traditionally overlooked or mischaracterized. As a young black reporter, I also feel compelled to mentor students and use my voice to advocate for more equitable conditions in media.
