ON RACE AT DRAKE
Drake University and The Des Moines Register teamed up in Spring 2016 to lead multiple discussions on the tough topic of race. I was asked to document each of these dialogues and to create a feature video that would be presented at the final discussion that included keynote speaker Jose Antonio Vargas, founder of Define American. As a self-initiated project, I later re-edited the interviews and audio I had recorded for a social media platform in hopes of engaging the younger generation in this meaningful conversation.
