Henry L. Davis III (he/him) is a writer and researcher from San Francisco. Born into a family of preachers, musicians, teachers and librarians, he grew up with an innate love for the arts. As he came into his own, Henry declared his own artistic passion to be storytelling. His years growing up in the Bay Area taught him how crucial organized efforts of self-reporting have been for people in his community. In turn, he places a heavy emphasis on different dimensions of Pan-Africanism, environmentalism and class struggle in his works. Henry’s time studying at the University of Southern California developed a drive to communicate his voice across mediums. This shines through his love of film photography, fashion, teaching, archival work and his ventures as a DJ.
When reporting, he aims to highlight communities who have been stripped of their voice, namely blue collar laborers, the unhoused, incarcerated people and migrants.
