Journalist and documentarian John Biewen -- producer of the Peabody Award-nominated "Seeing White" podcast series -- will lead a weekend journey on race in America and its meaning and impact on our lives.
Learn why most of what we think we know about race is inaccurate. We will take a closer look at some of the pivotal legislative and legal landmarks that we never learned in US History class.
What the heck is going on these days with White folks in America? What is “Whiteness” and how did it begin? How do we identify as White people in a nation which defined itself by fabricating race as the main criterion for conferring rights and privileges, and governing its citizens? Find answers to these questions and more.
Where have we progressed and what can we do to de-mythologize whiteness and contribute to a healthier conversation about race?
