 Nikole Hannah-Jones Biography

Nikole Hannah-Jones is an investigative journalist chronicling the demise of racial integration efforts and persistence of segregation in American society, particularly in education. Hannah-Jones combines analyses of historical, academic, and policy research with moving personal narratives to bring into sharp relief a problem that many are unwilling to acknowledge still exists and its tragic consequences for African American individuals, families, and communities.

Her work compels us to confront segregation as a fundamental cause of racial disparities and reshaping national conversations about education reform. Her profile of three generations of a family in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in "Segregation Now" (2014) illustrates the historical trajectory of segregation in many school districts in the South. Her hour-long radio piece, "The Problem We All Live With" (2015), displays her investigative reporting of the disparity in the Normandy School District of Ferguson, Missouri and exposes how the decisions we make as individuals and collectively as a society have created and perpetuated our two-tier education system. Her deeply personal account of her own experience as a parent in New York City's public school system, "Choosing a School for My Daughter in a Segregated City" (2016), shows that school segregation is not an isolated phenomenon but rather a defining factor of most cities across the country.

Prior to joining the staff of the New York Times, Hannah-Jones was a reporter for the Raleigh News and Observer (2003–2006), the Oregonian (2006–2011), and ProPublica (2011–2015) prior to joining the staff of the New York Times. In 2015, she co-founded the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting with the goal of increasing the number of reporters and editors of color. Two years later she was named a 2017 MacArthur 'Genius Grant' Fellow.

Hannah-Jones received a B.A. (1998) from the University of Notre Dame and an M.A. (2003) from the University of North Carolina.
