Joy Reid Early Life

Joy Reid was born in December 1968 in Brooklyn, New York. 

Joy-Ann Lomena was born in Brooklyn, New York City. Her father was from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and her mother was a nutritionist and college professor from Guyana. Her parents met while studying for their master’s degrees at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. Reid grew up as a Methodist, and he has one sister and one brother. Her father was an engineer who was frequently absent from the family; her parents eventually divorced, and her father relocated to the Congo. She was mostly raised in Denver, Colorado, until she was 17 years old, when her mother died of breast cancer and she moved to Flatbush, Brooklyn, to live with an aunt. Reid earned a bachelor’s degree in film studies from Harvard University in 1991.

Reid recalled in a 2013 interview that her college experience was a quick immersion into a demographically opposite place from where she lived, from an eighty percent African American to a six percent African American community. She had to learn to live with roommates and people who were not related to her. She paid her own bills and tuition while at Harvard, and she described it as an overall positive learning and growth experience.

She currently resides in New York, and her husband works as a documentary film editor for Discovery Channel.
