Kimbriell Kelly is a reporter on the Investigative Unit at The Washington Post and was part of the newspaper’s team that won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for National reporting for documenting the number of fatal police officer-involved shootings. In 2018, Kelly launched a five-part series Fired/Rehired, investigating how police chiefs at the nation’s largest police departments have been forced to put hundreds of officers fired for misconduct back on the streets. Her 2016 series on housing disparities in Prince George’s County won a Salute to Excellence Award from the National Association of Black Journalists. Prior to joining the Post, Kelly was the editor and publisher of The Chicago Reporter, a magazine that investigates issues of race and poverty. There, her reporting on mortgage lending sparked a lawsuit that resulted in an $8.7 billion settlement with Countrywide Financial and led to a $335 million discriminatory housing settlement between Countrywide and the U.S. Department of Justice, the nation’s largest fair lending settlement.
