DuBois on NPR
on January 31, 2007
A freelance reporter who does work for NPR interviewed me two weeks ago. He came to talk about a report on the need for supermarkets in Philadelphia that I worked on several years ago. He looked me up before the interview and saw the reference to the Mapping Du Bois project. Of course, I couldn't help myself but talk about that as much as the supermarket study.
His piece ran on NPR's show "Day to Day" today. He framed the piece with the Du Bois map of the Old Seventh Ward. All and all, the piece was quite generous. I was really excited that he was able to work the Du Bois material in so well. You can hear the broadcast and see the write-up (including a piece of the original Du Bois map) on the NPR website:
