We Are Superman chronicles the story of Troost Avenue, which lies in the heart of Kansas City. For over 60 years, Troost has drawn a geographic line between black and white, rich and poor.
But on the corner of 31st Street and Troost Avenue, a community of people are battling against prejudicial legislation, exploitative corporations, and a stereotype that has stigmatized the urban core since the suburban revolution. This is the story their work, their vision, and how they are no longer waiting on a Superman to come save them.
I produced this documentary, working closely with director Kevin Bryce. There were several other helping hands, but it was essentially just the two of us who worked to schedule, film, and edit this film. We Are Superman went on to air over 5,900 times on PBS-member stations, reaching 72% of all U.S. markets.
