Introducing MJD Blogger Felicia Pride

Starting Monday, your friendly neighborhood blogger will be Felicia Pride, a FBNY vet who will have all of you in good hands.

I (Rachel Kaufman) will be chiming in on Tuesdays and Fridays, but Felicia’s “taking over,” more or less.

Besides acting as a contributing editor for mediabistro, Pride is a content producer, creative entrepreneur and educator with more than ten years experience working in media. Her work has been featured by USA Today, NPR’s “Talk of the Nation,” and the Baltimore Sun. She has also been highlighted by the Maynard Institute as a Woman of Color in Digital Spaces.
Prior to her work here, she was the founding executive editor of inReads, an online community dedicated to “social readia,” that’s a production of WETA, the nation’s leading producer of public television programming.

She’s also the author of six books, a former book columnist for The Root and founding book blogger for AOL Black Voices. She’s also a hip-hop education fellow at NYU. Welcome Felicia!
