By | Amtrak Stories, Cross country | No Comments

Earlier this spring, award-winning author, journalist, and Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University’s journalism institute, Farai Chideya embarked on a cross-country train trip. As part of the inaugural¬†Amtrak Residency program, Farai swapped out her stationary office for scenic views, a mobile work space and the one of a kind experience of writing on a long-distance train.

While on her trip, the Melissa Harris-Perry Show caught up with Farai on the Crescent to hear first-hand about her journey. Watch and see what Farai had to say about her trip west.
