    Frankie Edozien

    Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, Chiké Frankie Edozien learned to read from the newspapers his father brought home. Today he’s an award-winning reporter whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Times (UK), Quartz, Vibe magazine, Time Magazine and more. He was a New York Post political reporter for over a decade. His work has been featured on numerous new broadcasts. He co-founded the AFRican magazine in 2001 to tell often overlooked, African stories. In 2017, he authored the much-heralded Lives of Great Men. An excerpt, the much anthologized ‘Shea Prince’ is a finalist for the 2018 Gerald Kraak Award for Human Rights Writing. Lives won the 2018 Lambda literary Award for Gay Biography/Nonfiction. The Book is also a 2018 finalist for the Publishing Triangle’s Randy Shilts Award for Nonfiction.  His fiction has been published by Jalada/Transitions Magazine. When he’s not teaching journalism at New York University, where he’s a Clinical Associate Professor and director of the ‘Reporting Africa’ program, he’s travelling across Africa.
