What is The Hudson Editorial

This is an independent editorial created by Justice Hudson, an Appalachian born and raised in West Virginia. It is a personal passion project, inspired by BlackByGod and their Folk Reporters initiative. The Hudson Editorial started at Wheeling City Council, and has since expanded to cover local events, arts, culture, and society. We offer interviews, exclusives, opinions, and facts-based reporting.
