Seeing White is a superb, multi-episode in-depth discussion on the nature of race and racism in America.  John Biewen and Chenjerai Kumanyika make their incisive scholarly commentary  relatable with kindness, warmth and humor, expressed throughout the series.  Join us for five Thursday evenings to listen and discuss these enlightening and powerful episodes.  

From the Seeing White Website: Just what is going on with white people? Police shootings of unarmed African Americans. Acts of domestic terrorism by white supremacists. The renewed embrace of raw, undisguised white-identity politics. Unending racial inequity in schools, housing, criminal justice, and hiring. Some of this feels new, but in truth it’s an old story.

Why? Where did the notion of “whiteness” come from? What does it mean? What is whiteness for?

Scene on Radio host and producer John Biewen took a deep dive into these questions, along with an array of leading scholars and regular guest Dr. Chenjerai Kumanyika, in this fourteen-part documentary series, over six  months. The series editor is Loretta Williams.
