Chris Dean, the young man in the short film that lives in the South Memphis community shown in the documentary.

Chris Dean and the Commercial Appeal’s Alan Spearman came to my journalism class last week to share “As I Am” with my class. “As I Am” is a short film by Alan Spearman that takes us through Chris Dean’s life in South Memphis. The film helped  us see a different community, a community that many people are not used to seeing. I wanted to put this film on my blog because I think it visually supports people giving back to people less fortunate than they are. We don’t know where people come from. We never know their story.
