Students participating in the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program with Detroit Public TV met for a celebratory event at our Midtown Studio at Wayne State University.
The event kicked off with students arriving at the Midtown Studio for a taping of DPTV’s longest running show, American Black Journal followed by a Q&A with the show host Stephen Henderson, producer Daphne Hughes and crew.
Students enjoyed a tour of DPTV’s high definition mobile production truck before everyone settled back into their seats to view the reports the students worked hard to produce. Lastly, FRONTLINE’s “Middle School Moment” video was discussed along with the challenges that youth face regarding succeeding in school.
Students came from Fraser High School, Golightly Career and Technical School and the Youth Neighborhood News Logan Network program.
