Career

Errin began her career at the Atlanta Daily World, the city’s oldest continuously-published black newspaper.

“A lot of the work I did was around the killings of unarmed Black people by the police and by vigilantes,” she says.

“And when I moved on from that job, I thought I had moved on from that work.

I certainly didn’t think I would be doing this work in the midst of a pandemic.

But here we are.”[1]

Her work at the 19th covers political news related to women-centric stories.

She was previously a national writer working at the Associated Press's on race and ethnicity, Errin focused on the intersection of race, politics, and culture — including civil and voting rights, the black electorate, and the emerging modern protest movement.
