personal message

Farai Chideya has combined media, technology, and social justice during her 20-year career as an award-winning author and journalist. From 2006 to early 2009, she hosted NPR’s News and Notes, a daily national program about African-American and African diaspora issues. She and the teams she has worked with have won awards including a National Education Reporting Award, a North Star News Prize, and a special award from the National Gay and Lesbian Journalists Association for coverage of AIDS.


She has written three nonfiction books: Trust: Reaching the 100 Million Missing Voters; The Color of Our Future; and Don’t Believe the Hype: Fighting Cultural Misinformation About African Americans. All are taught on college campuses across the country, and The Color of Our Future has found an increasingly broad audience as America has become more diverse (and Americans more aware of our collective diversity). Her novel Kiss the Sky (Atria Books) was released in hardcover May 2009 and paperback May 2010. During the spring and summer of 2010, Farai is blogging a song a day from the 91 song playlist in Kiss the Sky. You can find those blog posts here.

Chideya also founded PopandPolitics.com as a blog in 1995. It later became a university-based journalism training institution. This summer, the brand relaunches as Pop and Politics Radio, with nationally syndicated public radio content, web video, and social media. Stay tuned.
