Doug Harlow isn't afraid to use his voice. He was a street poet in Boston and protested the Vietnam War in D.C. There was a time he could say "I love you" in a dozen languages.

Doug Harlow isn't afraid to use his voice. He was a street poet in Boston and protested the Vietnam War in D.C. There was a time he could say "I love you" in a dozen languages.

Until September, 2019, he worked as a reporter in Maine and churned out seven, sometimes eight, articles a week. Doug was a born communicator, but it's not because he has the loudest voice in the room.

Parts of Speech was produced by Emily Kwong, winner of the 2013 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition Best New Artsist Award, for the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
