Jenn M. Jackson is a proverbial "Jill" of all trades. She's a mom of three who dreams up statistical probabilities while watching reality tv. She never drinks coffee but loves hot chocolate. She's a freelance writer, educator, and politics scholar. And, she's a misanthrope. Jenn has been over six foot three since seventh grade, unapologetically. No, she doesn't play basketball.

Jenn's work: She writes stories about life at the intersection of Black politics, womanhood, and lifestyle. She also teaches college students political science research methods and Black politics. Jenn works daily to change the social and media narrative for young Black women and people of color.

She co-runs the award-winning blog Water Cooler Convos with her husband Daren W. Jackson. Here she writes about social issues and pop culture. She is also the founder and CEO of The Worth Campaign, a nonprofit committed to empowering young Black women and girls.
