My story on the John Wayne exhibit controversy at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. This piece includes interviews and statements from: students leading the movement, Eric Plant and Reanna Cruz; Cesar Chavez’ niece and Dolores Huerta’s daughter Maria Elena Chavez; John Wayne’s son, Ethan Wayne; and Native American SCA alum Lucas Brown Eyes. The piece also includes visuals of: the exhibit, items, a 360 virtual tour, a timeline of John Wayne’s life and a map of his influence.
This piece was an assignment for my fall immersion course in my USC master’s of journalism program. It was reported, written, photographed and coded by me.
