ENVISIONING HOME:
THE JEAN KING AND RICHARD BARON STORY

This is an image“Envisioning Home” is a feature length documentary film exploring the personalities and accomplishments of two imaginative leaders, two agents of change in the world of public housing. Beginning with the 1968-69 tenant strike these two wildly different people came together in St. Louis and began to forge a vision for transforming the way we think about affordable public housing. By inspiring resident and family empowerment while creating more humane places to live, they showed how individuals can make a difference, invigorating individual lives and building vibrant neighborhoods and communities from distressed central cities. A remarkable, homegrown leader during the tenant strikes, Jean King met Richard Baron, a legal aide-turned-visionary planner and developer (co-founder/chairman, McCormack Baron Salazar). Together they helped change the face of inner city life in St. Louis and beyond. With production nearly completed, “Envisioning Home” should be ready for premieres and festival submission in September.
