Emmy Award-winning journalist Jemele Hill is multi-hyphenated, her list of accomplishments transcends sports journalism although that is where most of us were first introduced to her.

Hill made regular appearances on ESPN programs including ESPN First Take, Outside the Lines, and The Sports Reporters. And in 2017 she became an evening anchor of ESPN’s flagship show, SportsCenter.

Hill is the co-founder of Lodge Freeway Media a film and television production company, she currently hosts her own podcast Jemele Hill Is Unbothered, and is a contributing writer at The Atlantic.

Her list of achievements is long, but few knew Hill before her success and accolades. In her memoir Uphill, we get a fuller picture of the woman we know today.

Hill talks about growing up with two parents who were addicted to drugs, and having an unstable childhood all while running fiercely towards her dreams. We read about her journey to ESPN, and the infamous tweets (read around the world) calling the then-sitting President of the United States of America, a “white supremacist.”

Uphill is insightful, inspiring, raw, and juicy.

In celebration of the paperback release, I got the chance to talk to Hill, and it was a great conversation.
