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.
