Dawn Logsdon has been working on documentaries about social justice and history for over fifteen years. She edited the Academy Award-nominated Weather Underground, Sundance award-winning Paragraph 175, George Foster Peabody Award award-winning The Castro, and many other documentaries for PBS, HBO, and Channel Four in England.
Logsdon has received fellowships from the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center, and she was a California Arts Council artist-in-residence. Raised in New Orleans, Logsdon is a proud graduate of the public schools there. She also holds a BA in philosophy from the University of California at Berkeley. Logsdon's neighborhood flooded during Hurricane Katrina, and for the past two years she has been dividing her time between New Orleans and the San Francisco Bay Area.
