I'm a freelance, multimedia journalist with a background producing and reporting for digital media, radio and television. My area of concentration is race and justice and their impact on immigration, politics and the environment. I also provide general news and features from throughout the African Diaspora, particularly as a Caribbean correspondent. I love exploring the nuanced, looking at historical and evolutionary causes for why our society operates as it does. But I especially enjoy being a catalyst for people of color to share their own experiences and perspectives in a media climate that often overlooks the value of lived experience.
WAIT, IS IT KENYA EVELYN OR KENYA DOWNS?
Both (for now)! In May, I said 'I do' and will now officially become Kenya Evelyn -- pronounced the British way (EVE-lyn). I'm slowly transitioning to my new name so you can expect to see Evelyn and Downs interchangeably for now. A new site handle and email are to come, as well.
