WVIZ's Applause explores abandoned homes

Last month, WVIZ/PBS's Dee Perry interviewed me about my March article, "Tear It Down!" The interview airs in tonight's episode of Ideastream's show Applause at 7:30 pm. It'll also air Saturday at 6:30 pm and Easter Sunday at 12:30 pm.

Thousands of abandoned homes mar Cuyahoga County's landscape, creating a major political issue for both the city of Cleveland and the county government. My articles accompanies Billy Delfs' striking photos of dozens of empty homes.

Applause, an arts show, is looking at creative responses to the foreclosure and abandonment crisis, including Billy's photography. Perry interviewed me on the porch of Langston Hughes' former home.
