In some professional news...
LOL I couldn't resist.
I’m excited to share that my research project and piece, How You Play Spades is How You Play Life, has received the first Honorable Mention for Best Data Visualization in this year's American Journalism Online Awards from NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute AND has made the Long List in the Leisure, Games, and Sport category of the Data Visualization Society’s Information is Beautiful Awards.
Thank you again to the team at The Pudding for working with me all last year to bring this piece to life.
“Spades feels Black like electric slides at family reunions and cookouts. Spades feels Black like post-church Sunday dinners. Spades feels Black like Dominoes. Spades feels like Black people being unhindered and able to just be themselves.” - Terrance, 29, Phoenix
