Simeon Booker reported on penitentiary hangings, lynchings in the Deep South and Freedom Riders. He covered the EmmetTill story. He was the first black reporter hired by the Washington Post in 1951. He added a voice to the civil rights movement. He should be remembered – for his courage, grace and strength to speak truth to power. And for helping pave the way for the all-too-few minority reporters working today. Journalism needs more diversity. It needs more Simeon Bookers.
