For over thirty years I have worked in non-fiction as a writer, photographer, filmmaker and educator. From 2000 to 2005, I created my first interactive multimedia project, The Dawn At My Back: Memoir of a Black Texas Upbringing, as an experimental memoir. I began using interactive multimedia to be able to experientially connect Dawn's audience to its central theme of racism. I wanted to reveal racism's impact on family relationships through personal stories infused with universal historical and cultural contexts.
