Writer and journalist Tamar Sarai will deliver the Hardman Journalist in Residence Lecture in the Feigenbaum Center for Science and Innovation Atrium. The lecture is free and open to the public.

“Tamar Sarai represents a refreshing journalistic practice which our Beacon and Beacon Web News journalism students will find energizing and modern,” said MCLA Professor Michael Birch. “Her writing will offer new topics and focus for their learning, as will her emphasis on the power and value of good writing in the service of exceptional storytelling. This will be an excellent learning opportunity for our students.”

Tamar Sarai is a writer and journalist currently based in Philadelphia. She is a features writer at Prism, a non-profit media outlet that seeks to highlight the perspectives and voices of those directly impacted by some of today’s most pressing issues.

Tamar’s work focuses on race, culture, and the criminal legal system. Both her writing for Prism and her freelance work often focus on the ways Black women and girls are impacted by policing and the prison system. Her work has been featured in outlets including Shadowproof, Capital B, and Essence. Tamar is a graduate of Wellesley College and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

MCLA’s Hardman Lecture Series presents in-depth discussions with some of the leading journalists of our time and is made possible through the generosity of the Hardman Family Endowment.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
