A new project documents the ripple effect of every Oakland homicide in 2017
All last year, they explored the stories of the people who were lost to violence, and their families, and communities. The result of this yearlong reporting project is a new documentary called Counted: An Oakland Story.
Producers Anna Sussman and Adizah Egan joined Hana Baba in studio to talk about the process of making it.
"Since the number has gone down, a lot of the press around it has also gone down. But there are still people who are dying. And a lot of them are young Black men, and their families who they leave behind. And so we wanted to capture what the ripple effect of homicide looks like for a family in Oakland right now."
