Lloyd Newman: Teenage Chronicler of Ghetto Life Who Won a Peabody Award

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Lloyd Newman, Teenage Chronicler of ‘Ghetto Life,’ Dies at 43”:

Lloyd Newman, who teamed up with a fellow teenager in the 1990s to record two award-winning radio documentaries that bared the pernicious underside of growing up in a Chicago public housing project, died in Elmhurst, Ill.

Mr. Newman, the understated, harder-luck half of the duo, was 14 and in the eighth grade when he and his best friend, LeAlan Jones, 13, tape-recorded 100 hours of oral history and interviews to produce “Ghetto Life 101.” The producer David Isay transformed it into a 28-minute segment on National Public Radio in 1993.
