Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria in the 1970s, Chike Frankie Edozien learned to read from the newspapers his father brought home daily. He grew up to become an ink-stained scribbler telling the stories of others in service of a greater good. Today he’s an-award winning reporter whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Times (UK), Quartz, Vibe magazine, Time Magazine, Out Traveler, The Advocate, The New York Post and on broadcast news. He co-founded the AFRican magazine in 2001 to tell African stories overlooked by international media. He is a contributor to the 2016 Commonwealth Writers anthology, Safe House: Explorations in Creative Nonfiction. When he’s not teaching journalism at New York University, where is a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of “the ‘Reporting Africa” program, he’s travelling across Africa.
