Jenice Armstrong

JENICE ARMSTRONG is a newspaper metro columnist with more than twenty-five years of experience writing for such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News, the Washington Post, The Associated Press (Washington bureau), and the Rochester Times-Union. After graduation, she headed west where she interned for such publications as the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Albany Democrat-Herald, and the Kansas City Star. She’s happiest when she’s in Philly’s diverse neighborhoods connecting with people and reporting on stories that otherwise wouldn’t get told. In 2017, the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association awarded her first place for commentary for a selection of her columns, including a particularly fiery one she wrote the morning after Pres. Trump was elected called “Shame on Deplorable Trump Backers.” She’s known for her blunt honesty and bravery in speaking out against social injustice. Armstrong graduated from Howard University where she majored in print journalism, edited a school newspaper and dreamed of uncovering the next Watergate. @jenicearmstrong
