C. Zawadi Morris
<https://pulitzercenter.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1e0daa892d0fd84e520a9c9af&id=52c9106e87&e=f8216b8e89>
is a Brooklyn-based journalist and founder of the BK Reader, an online news
source that gives a voice to underreported stories in the Brooklyn
community. As a Pulitzer-supported grantee, Morris created the *COVID-19
Writers Project (C19WP)*
<https://pulitzercenter.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1e0daa892d0fd84e520a9c9af&id=ffb6243d60&e=f8216b8e89>,
inspired by the 1930s Federal Writers Project (FWP), which recorded the
testimony of formerly enslaved Black Americans. Like the FWP, Morris’
project provides first-person, multimedia narratives that reflect our
current condition. *C19WP* provides a snapshot of the U.S. during the
pandemic, illustrates how New Yorkers are finding digital connections
despite physical isolation, and centers COVID-19’s disproportionate impact
on Black communities.
