LANSING, Ill. (June 14, 2022) – Quinton R. Arthur, a regular contributor to The Lansing Journal, has been named a Fellow of the Maynard 200 Fellowship Program. The program is an initiative of the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, a “nonprofit dedicated to expanding diversity in the news media and dismantling structural racism in newsrooms,” said a news release about the Maynard 200 Fellowship.
Fellows fall into four categories: Investigative Storytelling, Frontline Editors and Managers, Executive Leadership, and Media Entrepreneurship.
Arthur has received his fellowship in the Media Entrepreneurship category, as he is the founder of his own media company, QRamone Media. In addition to the photo, video, and other content creation work he does for his company, Arthur also works as an external affairs manager at the Chicago Urban League. Besides writing for The Lansing Journal, he also writes for the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle and the Southland Journal.
“Through the Maynard 200 program, I’m looking forward to learning new skills, connecting with other journalists, and advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in journalism as part of the program,” Arthur said. “I am proud to be part of the team at The Lansing Journal, who remind me one of the tenets of great journalism is community.”
