Jenn M. Jackson is a proverbial “Jill” of all trades. As an accomplished engineer, she’s also a mom of three, politics scholar, and activist who dreams up statistical probabilities while watching reality TV. She never drinks coffee but loves hot chocolate. Jenn has been over six-foot-three since seventh grade. And, no, she doesn’t play basketball.

Jenn's work: She writes stories about Black womanhood at the intersection of politics, parenting, and pop culture. She also teaches college students political science research methods and Black politics.

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