The Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting will launch its partnership with UNC Hussman with a thoughtful conversation with some of America’s leading investigative reporters on Saturday, Nov. 16.
The inaugural event will take place in Carroll Hall with society co-founders including Nikole Hannah-Jones ’03 (M.A.). The conversation will range from Jones’ massively influential The 1619 Project for The New York Times Magazine, to the future of investigative journalism, to raising the caliber of reporting through diverse voices. The panelists will also discuss their own careers and give students tips on reporting stories and charting their own paths.
