“Death of a Young Black Journalist”

This summer, I wrote about the unsolved murder of Charnice Milton, a young D.C. reporter who embodied, in many ways, the power of community journalism and its insistence that every human life — no matter how “anonymous” or far from power — matters. Milton didn’t define her gig as covering crises, as so many of us do; she wrote about local geeks and students and growers of things. You can read my piece, and learn more about her life and work, here.

Charnice Milton.
