To many people outside of Birmingham’s Ensley community, Ensley is merely a crime-ridden, impoverished place. The Junction is a multimedia project that goes beyond the quick crime reports to explore what life is really like there, according to the community itself. The Junction is produced by Mary Quintas, brought to you by WBHM, and executive produced by AIR, The Association for Independents in Radio. The Junction is part of AIR's national initiative, Localore: Finding America. Financial support comes from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
