The Voices photo workshop introduces minority children to documentary visual story-telling through the practice of photography and an introduction to photojournalism, and aims to foster an interest in media careers.
I created Voices as a graduate student at the University of Missouri's School of Journalism in the nineties, inspired by the Shooting Back program and wanting to make a difference in my profession. Today it is more important than ever to push for diversity in the media, so I have been working to bring Voices back to life since coming back to Columbia. With the help of Bill Thompson and Mizzou's PhotoJ students, it is finally happening.
For this first edition of Voices, we are focusing on at-risk kids, and will kick off on October 21st.

Media So White no more.
