Journalistic Video Productions
The Violent Racist History of Cannabis in the America
For a journalism class, I created an explainer video on the war on drugs and it's violent racist history.
The Black Twitter Show
For a journalism class focused on YouTube, I made a series of videos focusing on the day-to-day conversations, controversies and news stories that circulate Black Twitter and how I see them and why I see them that way. I also give commentary on how different sub-groups see these matters and why.
Pride in a Pandemic
For the final project in my journalism class, I was asked to produce a bright light story. This feature story is about Out in Tech's Virtual Pride Party. It was a community of queer people meeting over Kumospace instead of celebrating in public because of the pandemic.
Rising New York: Macy's Inc
For a journalism class I produced a Rising New York story. This story investigates the Macy’s Inc. and its giant renovation project that will involve not only updating its flagship store to include a 1.5 million-square-foot office tower above the store, but completely revitalizing the Herald Square neighborhood as well.
Joints for Jabs
For a journalism class I produced a hard news story. This story focuses on Washington State's joints for jabs program which allowed adults to receive a free joint when they get their COVID-19 vaccine. The marijuana for vaccinations promotion was in effect until July 12. It was part of the state's strategy to get more people vaccinated.
Pulse Nigeria Independence Day Feature Story
On Thursday, October 1, 2020, Nigeria celebrated her 60th Independence Day. In a bid to create something beautiful to mark Nigeria’s Diamond Year on Pulse’s media platforms, my colleague and I collaborated on this project. The goal of the project was the tell the riveting story of Nigeria’s Independence Day in 1960 when she became a sovereign country free from British rule.
