Jeremiah O. Rhodes (he/him/his) is a journalist and documentary filmmaker, originally from the American South.
Rhodes is passionate about covering stories related to power – its weaponization, ways that people build and lose it and those most affected by it. In his past work, that has led him to focus on stories surrounding race, sexuality, history and identity in the South. He hopes to expand those subject areas in his time at UC Berkeley.
He has worked with video teams at The Washington Post, Texas Tribune, NPR, Univision, among others. His film work has been screened at film festivals across the country, including Blackstar Film Festival, the New Orleans Film Festival, among others.
His journalism work has been recognized by College Photographer of the Year, Scripps Howard Awards and the National Press Photographer’s Association.
Rhodes is a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and the National Association of LGBTQ+ Journalists (NLGJA).
