On Tuesday, September 22, please join the Pulitzer Center and the Charles Center at the College of William & Mary for a conversation with Arionne Nettles, a Chicago-based journalist and lecturer at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications. She'll incorporate her experience working as a journalist during a global pandemic and her Pulitzer Center-supported reporting on the impact of COVID-19 on museums.

This event is free and open to the public. To register for the event, please fill out this form.

Nettles contributed to the Pulitzer Center-supported Prairie State Museums Project, which investigated the effects of the pandemic on local museums in Illinois, and in turn, highlighted the value of these critical community institutions.

As a reporter and editor, her work often explores art's cultural ties to issues such as mass incarceration and educational inequity. Most recently, Nettles worked as a digital producer at Chicago's NPR station, WBEZ, where she ran the daily digital desk.

Prior to joining the WBEZ team, Nettles was a multiplatform editor at The Associated Press, where she edited stories for the AP's 14-state central region, breaking news online and on social platforms. She also worked as digital managing editor of the Chicago Defender, one of the nation's oldest Black newspapers, and as a freelance reporter before pivoting to full-time journalism.

The College of William & Mary is part of the Pulitzer Center's Campus Consortium, a network of partnerships between the Pulitzer Center and universities and colleges to engage with students and faculty on the critical global issues of our time. Northwestern's Medill is also a Campus Consortium partner.
