Marcus Green walked away from a successful career in finance and investment in Southern California to return to his South Seattle roots. He wanted to give a voice to the people of South Seattle, an area, he says “has had so much darkness casted on it via the mainstream media.” So he created a community based web publication, South Seattle Emerald, to shine a light on a part of the city that is often ignored. We talk about his journey to build the community news website, its stories and how it is working to change the perception of South Seattle and its residents. Marcus is the recipient of Crosscut’s 2015 Courage Award for Culture.
