Good Things with Rebecca Turner
In 1990, while covering a story about homelessness for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, photojournalist Ted Jackson encountered a man sleeping under a bridge. After snapping a photo, Jackson woke the man. Pointing to the newspaper by his side, the homeless stranger looked Jackson in the eye and said, “You ought to do a story about me.” When Ted asked why, he was stunned by the answer. “Because I’ve played in three Super Bowls.” YOU OUGHT TO DO A STORY ABOUT ME offers a rare glimpse into one man’s—Jackie Wallace’s—life and experience navigating these issues and more. Through Ted Jackson’s candid, poignant storytelling and experience bearing witness as a photojournalist, the reader will come away with a deeper understanding of the lingering legacies of racism, discrimination, and systemic inequality, and discover the power of compassionate friendship. ,
