Introductions and Such

by Jamelle Bouie

I'm not particularly good at blog introductions, so I will keep this short. My name is Jamelle Bouie, and I'm a Writing Fellow at The American Prospect. I studied politics and religious studies at the University of Virginia (any Wahoos around?), and as far as TAP is concerned, my main area is American politics, with an emphasis on boring bits—like campaign finance reform—and a broader interest in political science. I'm grateful to Ta-Nehisi for the opportunity to blog at his place, and I will try not to bore you too much over the course of the week.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
