“Seeing White” is Timely and Urgent!
The podcast series “Seeing White,” is an open, honest, probing and vitally important look at what it means to be white in America yesterday and today. It demonstrates in clear, well paced ways how privilege—and the lack of privilege if you are a person of color—is built into the fabric of our society, with laws, institutions and systems of oppression that promote and sustain inequity and deeply rooted bais. “Seeing White” unpacks a pervasively hidden history (as compared to when I was in grade school growing up in the 60s and 70s) that needs to be explored by all Americans and put at the forefront of conversations everywhere—from our schools and universities, to our own kitchen tables. Now is the time for white people to own our past and to forge a better future by doing the work of dismantling our own inhumanity and systemic prejudices which are so clearly outlined by this series. As a teacher myself, I am building the “Seeing White” podcasts into my curriculum and structuring my course requirements around the series. I hope you will find a way to make it real for your community as well.
