Carrington Tatum, Reporter - MLK50 Memphis

On this episode, we’re joined for an interview by Carrington Tatum.

Carrington is a reporter for MLK50 – a non-profit newsroom focused on poverty, power, and public policy that was founded in 2017 by journalist Wendi Thomas.

He’s also a part of the Report for America program. Regular listeners know that we’re a huge fan of that organization, which is now taking applicants for its next reporting class at

Carrington talked about his nearly 40-story series on the Byhalia Pipeline project, one that would have run through one of Memphis’ poorest neighborhoods had it been enacted. He discussed the challenges of learning the subject matter and the prevalence of environmental racism across the country.

He also referenced other work he’d done and shared both his path to a journalism career and how Report for America had benefited him.
