For this audio story, I interviewed people of color about what it’s like to pass as white. I found that most people who pass as white have heard lots of different opinions on whether or not they look one way or another, so I wanted to make sure these interviewee’s personal experiences were heard before whoever was listening to the story made a judgement on how they look. That was made possible by Alex Duner, who coded this project, and Hyunjee Lee, who was the photographer on this story. "Passing" went on to be a finalist for the Society of Professional Journalist's Mark of Excellence Awards in Best Use of Multimedia category.
