After the Shooting-an interactive worth watching

Considering all the continued news about islamophobia and related hate crimes in America, this interactive ‘After the Shooting’ is worth checking out. It was produced by students and journalists at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication and Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University after the of murders of three Muslim students earlier this year.

Very simple and well done interactive, it explores different issues like religion, media, mental health and guns. I really liked how you could pair up two topics and see people talk about how these problems intersect.

It brings us back to a project Vignette did earlier this year about the funding of Islamophobia in America for the Center for American progress. Still, sadly, extremely relevant.

Are there other interesting interactives that tackle this issue? I’d be interested to find more of these, so please feel free to post a comment about them.
