Here's the first person in line to vote in the United Center.

She was registered to vote on the South Side, but she received mixed signals about where to vote. So, she woke up at 4 a.m., got her an iced coffee from Dunkin, and voted where she heard "any and everyone" could.

Quoted @bladeguild

- Sarah Baird was named best newspaper graphic designer.

- @lizskalka won first-place in political reporting

- @AllisonDBlade won second-place for criminal justice reporting

Pretty cool to be recognized alongside my former colleagues by Ohio SPJ. For this particular story, I examined preexisting housing discrimination practices in Toledo and its enduring impact on the city. This required a great deal of historical research and a lot of data analysis.

I can't afford to be the angry Black man.

I have to package my frustration with nuance, faux optimism, and euphemisms before sprinkling a little humility on top--just so it's palatable for America.

The mayor announced tickets only would be issued for safety violations in the pandemic's early weeks. Days later, she quietly ordered expired parking meters to be ticketed anyway - and thousands now must pay the price. From me, @jsmithrichards @royalpratt

It’s always an honor to make Sunday’s front page. Man, it’s still a dream come true. I’m just a boy from Gary. There are so many reasons I’m not supposed to be here. God has been too good to me 🙏🏾
