Kicking off the Pulitzer Center project

October 1, 2009

I’ve landed in Monrovia, resisting the temptation to become even the cutest kid’s mom, and I’m about to dive into an overpacked month of reporting with the unparalleled Glenna Gordon. Our project page went live at the Pulitzer Center today, and you read all about what we’re doing here…here. There’s also a load of useful additional resources, so go get your Liberia on.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep blogging here, and we’ll both be blogging on the Pulitzer Center’s Untold Stories blog, which also has some great work from a bunch of other amazing reporters flinging themselves around the globe.

Hope you’ll follow us, here or there or everywhere, and let us know what you think.

    Hi Jina!!

    My name is Grace, and I was one of the students that you spoke to when you came to Ms. Pierce’s class.
    I just want to first off tell you how much I enjoyed hearing you talk about your travels, and your different experiences in Africa ).
    Secondly I talked to Ms. Pierce and she said that I should post something on your blog about a seminar that I attended this past Saturday.

    I went to a private seminar that only about twenty people attended. The speaker’s name was Kimmie Weeks.
    I don’t know if you have heard of him or not, but he is from Liberia and he has done many great things for child soldiers and the less fortunate in his home country of Liberia.
    He told us of his story about growing up in a war-torn country with the rebels attacking and killing people, and how he survived it while many others died by either getting killed or of diseases.

    I ‘ll send you more on him soon!

    Thanks again for having come to speak to us!!
