Scene on Radio is a documentary show that asks, How’s it going in our society and culture? And leaves the studio to find out. Our current series, Seeing White, explores the history and meaning of Whiteness in American life. Produced and hosted by public radio veteran John Biewen at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
Events of the past few years have turned a challenging spotlight on White people, and Whiteness, in the United States. An introduction to our series exploring what it means to be White. By John Biewen, with special guest Chenjerai Kumanyika.
Great series. Everyone should hear this to understand where we are and how we got here.

I can’t thank you enough. I’m posting about this every week in hopes of getting all white people I come in contact with to listen. I was able to listen to it in 2 sittings while on a long drive and I found myself shouting out in surprise and agreement and weeping with sadness for what people of color have endured and overcome and how much more deep foundation restructuring we have to do. I feel like I’m seeing and hearing the world in a new way and I am grateful. Thank you for walking your talk and inspiring me to do the same.
