Ko Bragg is a writer and editor based in and focused on the U.S. South—Mississippi in particular. You can find her work in The Atlantic, where she recently reported a print and audio feature about an aging cohort of Black tour guides who are fighting the local erasure of the 1964 Freedom Summer murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner. Her award-winning work also appears in FRONTLINE, Harper’s Bazaar, Columbia Journalism Review, Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, The Appeal, and more.
Previously, she was the Race & Place Editor at Scalawag, where she still runs her newsletter “Pop Justice” on how popular culture warps our understanding of policing and justice. Prior to that, she was a general assignment reporter at The 19th and an editor at Southerly. She’s a proud alumna of Spelman College, and she also holds master’s degrees from Columbia Journalism School and Sciences Po Ecole de Journalisme in Paris.
