489: Jimmie Briggs – “DRIVING LARGE SCALE CHANGE”

Jul 16/2020

Jimmie Briggs is a documentary storyteller, writer and advocate for racial and gender equity. A member of the New York City Mayor’s Gender Equity Commission, he is also an adjunct professor in social change journalism at the International Center of Photography in New York.

He was a co-founder of Man Up Campaign, a globally-focused organisation to activate youth to stop violence against women and girls. This led to his selection as the winner of the 2010 GQ Magazine “Better Men Better World” search, and as one of the Women’s eNews ‘21 Leaders for the 21st Century’. Jimmie has served as an adjunct professor of investigative journalism at the New School for Social Research, and was a George A Miller Visiting Professor in the Department of African and African-American Studies at the University of Illinois: Champaign-Urbana.

Jimmie is a National Magazine Award finalist and recipient of honors from the Open Society Institute, National Association of Black Journalists and the Carter Center for Mental Health Journalism. His 2005 book Innocents Lost: When Child Soldiers Go To War took readers into the lives of war-affected children around the world. His next book project is an oral history of Ferguson, Missouri in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014.

Currently, he works as a Principal for the Skoll Foundation and connects with Lou Diamond to have a much needed conversation.
