Scene On Radio Podcast: Seeing White

Anti-Racism Work

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, released between February and August 2017. The series editor is Loretta Williams.

26 Ways to Be in the Struggle Beyond the Streets

Anti-Racism Work

This list is designed to celebrate all the ways that our communities can engage in liberation. For a range of reasons, there are and always have been folks who cannot attend rallies and protests but who continue to contribute to ending police and state violence against black people.

People seek justice and support liberation in an array of ways, yet their bodies, their spirits,
and their lives may not allow them to be in the streets. We believe that we will win. And we need
the presence of everyone in the movement to do so. We affirm that all contributions are political,
militant, and valued.

By and for those in our communities who can’t be in the streets, we offer a list of concrete ways
that we are in the movement, and that we are supporting liberation every day. We see you. We
are you. See you in the struggle.
