Dartunorro Clark is a Reporter/Producer covering Harlem.
Prior to joining DNAinfo New York, Dartunorro worked as an investigative fellow for The Albany Times Union, where topics ranged from corruption to public health, and as a local government reporter for The Journal & Courier in Lafayette, Ind. He has also done freelance investigative research for The Marshall Project and wrote about New York City neighborhoods for amNew York.
Dartunorro grew up on Chicago’s South Side in Bronzeville, which is coincidentally Chicago’s Harlem. When he arrived in New York City for the first time in 2013 to attended Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, he chose Bedford-Stuyvesant as his beat because of his favorite film, “Do The Right Thing.”
Although he has grown to love New York City, as a native Chicagoan, he adamantly believes that Chicago’s pizza is infinitely better.
Fun Fact: In true millennial fashion, Dartunorro lives in East Harlem with two roommates he found using an app.
