Brown Lecture Series: Jemele Hill

Award-winning journalist Jemele Hill found solace in writing at an early age that led her on a career path from newspaper reporter and columnist to the anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter.   It was at ESPN in 2017 that she faced threats from the White House after sending tweets that were critical of President Trump.   She will join us to reflect on her life and career as she continuously worked to amplify her voice.

Jemele Hill is a contributing writer at The Atlantic and the host of the podcast Jemele Hill is Unbothered.  She is an Emmy Award-winning journalist and a former anchor of ESPN's SportsCenter.
