Thomas Bryant Jr. grew up as an African-American with albinism in Washington D.C. during the civil rights movement--a very complicated time to be in between.
Produced for the 2010 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: Book Odds.
Stephanie Foo is a producer for This American Life. Previously, Stephanie spent four years as a producer at Snap Judgment. Her radio work has also been featured on Radiolab and 99% Invisible. In her (rare) spare time, she pens the occasional article, draws comics and has a badass backhand.
Book Odds invited anyone/everyone to produce a short audio work inspired by (and named after) song titles from The Books' record The Way Out, and including samples from their library of musical bits, strange phrases and sonic doodads. Read more about and listen to other Book Odds submissions.
