Jerome Hudson is the author of 50 Things They Don’t Want You to Know, the Publishers Weekly and USA Today bestseller from HarperCollins that the New York Times refused to include on their bestsellers list.
Jerome first received national notoriety after the publication of his article “The Life of a Young Black Conservative,” which was featured in July 2009 as the top story on GlennBeck.com.
In 2009, Jerome entered an essay contest and was awarded a trip to the Young America’s Foundation’s annual National Conservative Student Conference, which was held at George Washington University in Washington, DC.
Jerome traveled to New York in November 2009, and again in January 2010, as a featured guest on “Time to Be Heard: Content of Character,” Glenn Beck’s television special on clack conservatives in America.
Jerome has been published nationally by National Review, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Human Events, and the Daily Caller among others.
Jerome has been called a “rising star” by nationally syndicated talk radio host Dennis Prager.
A member of the National Center for Public Policy Research and Project 21’s Black Leadership Network, serving on the organization’s National Advisory Council, Jerome has conducted hundreds of radio interviews and has been featured on Fox & Friends, Watter’ World, 700 Club, and The Eric Metaxas Show, to name a few.
In 2013, Jerome began writing for Breitbart News. He now leads a team of reporters who specialize in highlighting the vast disconnect between Hollywood and everyday Americans. His work covering the Hollywood elite was featured in the New York Times days after President Donald Trump’s election, in an article titled “How Conservative Sites Turn Celebrity Despair on Its Head.” (Jerome had the article framed for posterity).
Through the years, Jerome has engaged in debates on social media with the likes of Grammy-winning singer John Legend, Marvel movie director Joss Whedon, former MSNBC host and author Touré, and was repeatedly called a “coon” by rapper Talib Kweli.
Prior to coming to Breitbart News, Jerome worked as a senior research fellow at the Government Accountability Institute, heavily involved in uncovering government corruption alongside New York Times bestselling author and Breitbart News Senior Contributor Peter Schweizer.
Jerome has participated in Candace Owens’ BLEXIT rallies, delivering rousing speeches.
Jerome lives in Jacksonville, Florida, with his cat Oreo.
