This ‘Watchmen’ writer and Emmy Award-winner has a recipe for the perfect Juneteenth

We wanted to know the vibe for Juneteenth this year, so we asked Emmy Award-winning L.A.-based TV writer, essayist and journalist Cord Jefferson. Jefferson is best known for his work on “The Good Place,” “Master of None,” “Succession” and the Emmy-awarded “Watchmen,” which he and the show’s creator, Damon Lindelof, won last year in the writing for a limited series category. During his acceptance speech, Jefferson famously thanked his therapist, Ian, and advocated for free therapy in this country. But he’s been doing the work for years, writing poignant essays on the Black experience and searing satire critiquing media’s portrayal of Black communities. In January, he launched the 2021 Susan M. Haas Fellowship to help underemployed journalists break into TV writing, with special attention on folks who are traditionally underrepresented in writers rooms.
