On one level, it seems Americans talk about race and ethnicity all the time. The news media always seem to be reacting to the latest racial “incident,” while pundits ponder “race relations” year in and year out. The premise of this series is that the American conversation about race and the stories we tell ourselves about race and ethnicity are deeply incomplete and often misleading. We need new stories and new understandings about [American] history and our current racial and ethnic reality. (Scene on Radio, 2016)

Scene on Radio is a podcast that tells stories exploring human experience and American society. Produced and hosted by John Biewen, Scene on Radio comes from the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University and is distributed by PRX. In Season 2, the Peabody-nominated Seeing White, Biewen and collaborator Chenjerai Kumanyika explored the history and meaning of Whiteness.

This podcast will be used as a framework and a conversation starter around the issues of race; specifically, Whiteness. Race is overly analyzed, but rarely do we look at Whiteness. The conversation will extend into how the use of race affects you—individually, professionally, and systemically. How does the use of race impact your work and worldview? With affinity groups we will interrogate and challenge beliefs and move to tangible action plans. Each week participants will be expected to listen to two episodes of the podcast, Seeing White (season 2), and be prepared to discuss.
