Hey there. I'm Jamelle Bouie. I am the chief political correspondent for Slate Magazine, and a political analyst for CBS News. I cover campaigns, elections, and national affairs. My work has appeared either online or in print at the New Yorker, the Washington Post, The Nation, and other publications.

Before Slate, I was a staff writer at The Daily Beast and a writing fellow at The American Prospect magazine. I'm from Virginia Beach, Virginia, and I attended the University of Virginia, where I graduated with degrees in political and social thought, and government. I use film cameras, read comic books, and enjoy heirloom beans. I'm very active on Twitter, Instagram, and Flickr. I also have a newsletter that you can read about here.

My other passion, besides writing, is photography. To see and read about my photos, check out my photography journal. To purchase prints of select photos, check out my print shop.
