DuPonts Honor Pieces on Michael Brown, Immigration

"St. Louis station KMOV, Baltimore's WBAL and Raleigh, N.C.'s WRAL are all being honored with the prestigious Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award,"Chris Ariens reported Tuesday for TVSpy.

"KMOV's Craig Cheatham and team are being honored for their investigation into the shooting death of Michael Brown and the criminal justice system in and around St. Louis in the hour-long, commercial free documentary The Injustice System.

"WBAL's Jayne Miller is being honored for her investigative work on the death of Freddie Gray. 'Her exemplary reports raised important questions about probable cause, police policy, and accountability,' the judges found. 'Miller asked probing, smart questions and followed up with clear analysis of a fast changing story.'

"WRAL reporter Leyla Santiago and photographer Zac Gooch are being honored for their series Journey Alone, about the surge in illegal immigration and the unaccompanied minors who made their way to North Carolina. . . ."

Documenting Chinese Who Are Adopted, Living in U.S.

"I wanted to tell the Chinese audience how the Chinese adopted live in America," Meng Han told Rena Silverman for the New York Times "Lens" blog, "and what kind of lives they have and what is different."

Han, a Hubert H. Humphrey Fellow at the University of Maryland, left China in the spring of 2014 to study English.

A senior photojournalist at Beijing News, Han "sought out families through an online advertisement," Silverman wrote Wednesday, "and the first response came surprisingly enough from Cheryl Wu, a second-generation Chinese woman who had adopted her daughter from China's Jiangxi Province.

"Ms. Wu had taught children with special needs in Washington, D.C. 'My job is to look after handicapped children,' she said, 'so I always hoped to adopt a child from a Chinese welfare house and take care of her myself.”

"Ms. Wu introduced Ms. Han to a network of families with adopted children who often got together for parties and other occasions. Over about a year, she met some 30 families in 10 states, some through word of mouth, others when a nonprofit organization wrote about her project in a newsletter, and still more through a school where families brought children to learn Chinese and Chinese dance. . . ."
