Capital B, the non-profit news organization launched by @laurenwilliams and @KO_616 for Black communities throughout the U.S., has announced its first local newsroom will be in Atlanta.

I'm thrilled to work with them as the Editor-at-Large for the ATL newsroom.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might already know I announced some major news this morning.
Capital B, a non-profit news organization launched by Lauren Williams, former editor-in-chief of Vox, and Akoto Ofori-Atta, former managing editor of The Trace, will launch it’s first local newsroom in Atlanta. I’ll serve as editor-at-large, working on community outreach, editorial strategy and more.
We’re hiring for three Atlanta-based positions right now: editor, community engagement editor and politics reporter. Click here if you want to apply or send me an email at jewel.wicker@capitalbnews.org if you have any questions.
I’ll say more about this soon, but for now I’m really excited and grateful for the kind response we’ve gotten so far.
What I'm Watching (and Listening To):
  • Rolling Stone’s mini-doc on Isaiah Rashad. (The interviews were done by Mankaprr Conteh, my new work friend who is now working for Rolling Stone from Atlanta!)
Rolling Stone
Ahead of 'The House Is Burning,' TDE rapper @isaiahrashad and his parents reflected on growing up, messing up, and getting better.

  • Victoria Monét’s “Coastin’” (This is the song I’ll wake my future kids up to on the weekends when it’s time to clean the house as a family.)

Your favorite artists are not all making money from making their art. Tech people sometimes dabble in other things. That is important to remember. It’s why for us—and this is part of Shine Theory—it’s more than transparency around how you make money and how your life is made possible. It’s important because we don’t have a model for this outside of rich people doing whatever they want and lying to you about it. - Aminatou Sow
Knowingly misleading readers by using a fake name is considered unethical for many news outlets — especially one that markets itself as a bulwark of truth and transparency. Far worse is plagiarism.
