ABC News announced ABC News Digital’s “Buffalo: Healing from Hate – One Year Later,” a multimedia project chronicling the one-year mark of the May 14, 2022, mass shooting that claimed the lives of 10 people at the Tops supermarket in Buffalo.
A press release stated, “This digital collection documents the complex struggle for healing in Buffalo, a community wrestling with tragedy and issues that predated the shooting. Through extensive on-the-ground reporting, ABC News Digital reports on Buffalo’s rich Black history, the deadly mass shooting, and how community members and the victims’ relatives are coping one year later.”
This collection of multimedia stories will be available on ABCNews.com today.
The press release continued, “The immersive storytelling experience includes a new, three-act documentary, ‘Buffalo: Healing from Hate: Saving Ourselves,’ which addresses decades of racism in the community, neglect felt by residents after the shooting, and how families, survivors and community members are trying to create lasting change. A collection of written stories and videos documents Buffalo’s history, economic disparities in the Black community within the city, the personal and difficult journeys of some of the survivors and family members of those killed as they head into Mother’s Day, and how those affected by the shooting are honoring victims through activism.”
ABC News Digital’s 2022 reporting and multimedia collection “Buffalo: Healing from Hate” is currently Peabody Award-nominated.
