I am a journalist in love with the rhythm of the moving image. I tell stories about the people other people think don't matter. I'm a writer, filmmaker, and a professor at Columbia Journalism School. I spent most of my early career at PBS' NewsHour, where I covered, variously, Urban and Regional Affairs, Labor Issues, the Pentagon, and the Middle East. I also covered the 1980 and 1984 Presidential campaigns. In 1986, I become a producer for CBS News; and five years later, for the PBS documentary series, "Frontline." I'm most famous for an autobiographical Frontline documentary called "Secret Daughter," which later became a memoir with the same title. I've won two Emmys: one for my coverage of the Grenada invasion in 1983, and a second for "Secret Daughter" in 1996. I've produced documentaries about gang violence, the role of religious faith in the black community; about a New Orleans family struggling to rebuild post-Katrina, and I'm currently producing a film about rural women living with HIV but without access to medical care in the American South. I've been a tenured professor at Columbia since 2006.
