Covering New Orleans with The Louisiana Weekly

I’m freelancing with the oldest Black-owned newspaper in New Orleans, the Louisiana Weekly. It’s nice to be working with a paper that offers a minority perspective on issues such as pre-emptive stops and frisks by the NOPD. I’ve been covering the controversy over the City’s attempt to re-bid the local trash removal contracts, which, according to the Times-Picayune, are the largest contracts ever awarded to Black-owned businesses.
