Boston Review’s Black Voices in the Public Sphere fellowship is an initiative designed to prepare and support a more diverse generation of journalists, editors, and publishers.
As we prepare to enter our third year, we are proud to introduce our next cohort of fellows:
Willow N. Curry is a writer, curator, and emerging arts critic. Taking a labor-focused approach, she will produce a series of essays and interviews examining the economic factors constraining artists and their work. Willow was previously an Emerging Critic Fellow at the National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) and went on to serve a year-long term on the NBCC Board of Directors.
Kelton Ellis holds a BA from Brown University and has been published in n+1 and The Nation. His project at Boston Review will explore how issues of disability and neurodivergence intersect with race, aiming to place them in the context of unfolding global crises.
Boston Review’s Black Voices in the Public Sphere fellowship would not be possible without the generous support of the Marguerite Casey Foundation and the Cameron Schrier Foundation.
