New York Times Student Journalism Institute – New Orleans 2012

I had the great pleasure of leading the video team at the extraordinary New York Times Student Journalism Institute, an annual event sponsored by the Times, the NABJ, the Boston Globe and Dillard University. The institute brings 24 minority student journalists (along with a couple dozen editors and teachers) to the Dillard campus in New Orleans’ Gentilly neighborhood to spend two weeks reporting stories in one of the storiest places on the planet. This year, students completed four video stories ranging from volunteerism and mentoring to issues surrounding adoption for same-sex couples and the continuing lure of tattoos (and those who wish to have the permanent marks removed). There might just be a fifth, if the student can muster up the energy to finish it. Have a look at stories by Patrice Peck, Kenneth Ware Jr., Stephon Dingle  and Chiyenumugo Odigwe:
