Editor and Publisher, The Chicago Reporter
From The Chicago Reporter’s staff page:
Susan Smith Richardson is editor and publisher of The Chicago Reporter. She’s been a crusading journalist for more years than she cares to remember, most of the time with daily newspapers. Her columns about gentrification helped her land a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard, where she also earned a Master in Public Administration.
Before becoming a journalist, she was a community organizer in Texas and the South, working in communities of color and with rank-and-file labor organizations.
