Tiger in a Cage? Touring East Africa’s Biggest Slum

Producer/Writer: Brielle Morgan
Technical Producer: Mark Valcour

About the documentary:

To most people, tourism in Kenya means lions, rhinos and elephants. Safaris – and white sandy beaches – have long dominated the travel market in this part of the world. But recently a new breed of tourism has emerged. It’s called slum tourism. And some say it’s a little too much like a safari. In the summer of 2012, Brielle Morgan went to Kibera, East Africa’s largest slum to find out the impact of slum tourism on the local community.

I’m into writing, producing, researching, and collaborating with creative, passionate folks to share stories from the margins. With experience making stories across mediums and borders, I’m still figuring out my place in the journalistic ecosystem. I suspect I’ll always be “figuring it out”. I love a thoughtful question line, no-frills nuance, and silent beats that push past comfortable. I respect journalists who acknowledge their own privilege and all the many, many things they don’t know. You can check out some of my work here: http://briellemorgan.weebly.com.
