Jelani Cobb has written for the New Yorker on race and politics since 2013. In the aftermath of the Ferguson Police shooting of teenager Michael Brown, Cobb knew he had to be on the ground in Missouri. Starting on August 13, Cobb walked the streets of Ferguson, conducted dozens of interviews, live blogged the Ferguson protests and the ensuing St. Louis Police crackdown on Twitter and still managed to crank out several articles for the New Yorker on the chaos in Missouri.
