"Southword": OA, Anderson and NPR

Posted By on Thu, May 19, 2011 at 10:25 AM


You've read about Little Rock photographer Dave Anderson's "So Lost" video series with the Oxford American here and his book "One Block: A New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds" here. Now comes news that OA and Anderson have partnered with National Public Radio to produce "Southword," multimedia stories about the South by Anderson and NPR journalists.

The first episode, about obesity in Mississippi, can be heard at 6 p.m. tonight on "All Things Considered" on KUAR. NPR's Debbie Elliott and Anderson went to Holmes County, which has the highest obesity rate in a state with the highest rate in the country. Anderson's companion video is "Living Large in Mississippi"; a Q & A with Anderson and Elliott is here.
