Today Sophia is joined on the podcast by Ken Armstrong and Meribah Knight: two journalists who investigated and broke an eye-opening story about Black children being jailed--for no crime at all. Meribah is a fellow of ProPublica’s Local Reporting Network and the host of The Promise, a truly phenomenal podcast about inequality and the people taking it on. Ken is a veteran of the Chicago Tribune and the Seattle Times, where he won his first of two Pulitzer prizes. He’s also an author whose book “Scoreboard, Baby” won the Edgar Allan Poe Award and a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. Sophia talks to them about their lives leading up to working together, what it was like to break this story and how it impacted them, and what people can do in their own communities to enact change.
