Reporters and Poets

An unlikely union has formed in the Bay Area: Local poets from Richmond, California, teamed up with CIR reporter Amy Julia Harris for her investigation into living conditions for tenants of the Richmond Housing Authority, one of America's worst public housing agencies.

The result: This is Home, a collaborative piece of multimedia storytelling that spotlights the findings and characters in CIR's investigation, reported in partnership with the San Francisco Chronicle and KQED. Al Letson gets a preview from one of the poets, Donte Clark, but you can watch the full film by the Off/Page Project.
