Cocktails & Conversation: Jeneé Osterheldt
Join us for a new series, Cocktails & Conversation at P.S. Speakeasy!
Hear from notable Kansas City business men and women telling the story of their path to success, over fresh cocktails, under ground, under the radar and off the cuff.
Your ticket includes admission and one complimentary house brand drink.
On January 17, 2018, P.S. Welcomes Jeneé Osterheldt, The Kansas City Star's Culture Columnist and 2017 Harvard Nieman Fellow.
Jeneé Osterheldt was named a diversity advocate by the NAACP of Olathe and we have seen her work appear in Essence, Rolling Out, KicksOnFire.com and most recently, Very Smart Brothas. She joined the Kansas City Star in 2001 as an intern covering pop culture and hip-hop before moving on to intern for The Contra Costa Times in California and The Pioneer Press in Minnesota. She returned to the Star in 2002 as a music critic and nightlife columnist.
She transitioned into a lifestyle colomnist and spent her fellowship year at Harvard exploring the role of pop culture and the arts in shaping identity and social justice movements. Her beat covered everything from Rachel Dolezal to the unapologetic blackness of Beyoncé's Formation.
She recently returned to The Star as a culture columnist, where her columns speak truth to power. She concentrates on identity through the lens of pop culture, politics and the arts. She's taken on Trump, sexism and is unafraid to write about controversial topics. For her, being a journalist is not simply a job or a career. It is a responsibility.
