She needed no help from me. A young print reporter in Charleston, SC by the name of Christina Elmore answered the request of my producer and me to interview her about her experience covering crime—and a specific crime—for her hometown paper. Who we met in Christina was a poised and dedicated young professional who does not shy away from her pursuit of the story. And she’s barely out of her 20’s! Is there hope for our future in journalism—specifically Black journalists whose presence alone is sure to make a difference in our U.S. newsrooms? I always want to believe so. Our small documentary crew agreed we struck gold when Ms. Elmore answered our questions with the facts, a clear and focused examination of her beloved Charleston and a heartfelt testimony of the job she wears as a badge of honor quite proudly. We hope The Post and Courier is honored to have her on staff as well. Glad we met.
