Can I take a moment to brag on my PB family right quick? Because this summer has been so, so real. Stacia is running the social media show at ColorLines. Jamelle will be covering politics at the Daily Beast. Joel is the new sportswriter at BuzzFeed. Angela’s debut novel, Haunting Detroit, was purchased by Houghton-Mifflin Read More
