Backpack Journalist Gets to the Roots of “Concrete Tomato”

WASHINGTON, DC, 12 June 2011 — Daniel Sadicario teaches English at the prestigious MICDS in St. Louis, Missouri. He, and the institution for which he works, understand the power and the promise of visual communication. A grant obtained through MICDS enabled Dan to attend my 2-5 June 2011 Backpack Journalism Workshop in Washington, DC, and he excelled during the event. He hit the story over and over, gathering visual and aural information with which he compiled this five-minute film. See it here on YouTube.
