Profiling a "Girl in the Shadows"
Tuesday, December 10, 2013
New York Times reporter Andrea Elliott discusses her 5-part series this week on the life of a homeless child in gentrifying Brooklyn. She says she spent a long time trying to find a child to profile, and chose Dasani for her strength, intelligence, and openness. That said, “she wasn't easy at first.”
If you have questions about helping Dasani, Andrea Elliot suggests emailing invisiblechild at legal-aid dot org. They have set up a trust.— Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) December 10, 2013
