SBU-SPJ Presents a Chat with Washington Post’s Emmanuel Felton
Emmanuel Felton, a race and ethnicity reporter at The Washington Post, will be the first guest in the spring speaker series presented by the Stony Brook University chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. The event will take place on Monday, February 7, at 8 p.m.
Felton came to The Post from BuzzFeed News, where he worked for nearly two years as an investigative reporter on the inequality desk. Within days of the January 6 Capitol riot, Felton unearthed a scoop about Black Capitol Police officers who said their superiors had failed to prepare them for the ferociousness of the rioters, who spewed racist abuse at them. That story was cited repeatedly during President Donald Trump’s second impeachment hearing.
Felton will talk about his career path and work at The Washington Post and will share his advice for young journalists.
