Stories from Inauguration Day streets

Feb. 10, 2009

Ken Koontz  gathered together a film crew and covered the stories on the streets of Washington during Inauguration Day.

He was at the Forum Tuesday showing video from that effort. DVDs containing a selection of the coverage made by the film crew will be available at the Forum on Feb. 17.

In one selection, footage of Barack Obama's swearing-in was woven into archival shots of violence on the Pettus Bridge during the Selma-to-Montgomery civil rights march, and of one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s last speeches before his assassination.

Another focused on a celebration of King Day at a District of Columbia church. Another focused on vendors on the streets on Inauguration Day.

Koontz owns WENS-TV, an Internet-based video service. Some of his video reports from Washington are posted there.




















The Forum welcomes all persons to its meetings beginning at 8 a.m. most Tuesdays of the year
at the West Charlotte Recreation Center, 2222 Kendall Drive, Charlotte, NC
down the hill from West Charlotte High School.
