This documentary podcast series from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Seeing White is a 14-part mini-series (30-45 min each) from the show Scene on Radio. The series looks to answer the questions:
Where did the notion of “whiteness” come from? What does it mean? What is whiteness for?
Hosts Jon Biewen and weekly guest host Dr. Chenjerai Kumanyika delve into the historical origins of whiteness and racism in the US. The series looks at the history as well as the social constructs and emotional grappling that Americans engage in when discussing race and whiteness. Join us each week to discuss a new topic.
