On The Grio Today…

NJ’s Black Population Doesn’t Put Christie on a Pedestal

Today’s story was a challenge, but I did it! To be honest I am very proud of the end results. I got great interviews yesterday from Sheila Y. Oliver, the Speaker of New Jersey’s state Assembly and Brigid Harrison a professor at Montclair University. Both women were dynamic and elequent.The story was NJ focused so I didn’t branch out too much geographically, but I did speak to two people who I had no direct connection to previously. How about that for expanding my network 🙂
