ReInvention Stories: LaToya Coleman

Apr 3, 2013

WYSO has been bringing you ReInvention Stories on the radio each week, accompanied by short films on the web. But, there is a third component to our ReInvention Stories project: an interactive web documentary at, featuring seven new stories from Dayton.  

Below is an excerpt from one of those stories. The ReInvention team met LaToya Coleman on her porch in Residence Park. Coleman worked for a Dayton-based company that supplies auto parts to GM and Chrysler. She thought she would retire from that job – And when she got laid-off it was devastating for her and her family.

Find out how LaToya Coleman’s story ends at, an interactive documentary. The third and final act launches on Tuesday, April 9., an interactive web documentary.
