“In grand Slate tradition, tell us a bit a little about yourself.”
That’s the invitation that concludes every email announcement of a new Slate hire. Here’s what new staff writer Jamelle Bouie had to say.
Before Slate, Jamelle was most recently a staff writer at the Daily Beast. At Slate, he’s writing about politics, public policy, elections, and race. Jamelle sits next to Josh Keating in the D.C. office.
If you want to check out Jamelle’s beautiful pictures of food (and other stuff), visit Jamelle’s Tumblr, Instagram or Flickr. If you want the Slate-y take on “food porn,” Jamelle recommends L.V. Anderson.
