Social Justice Readings & Podcasts
John Biewen is the host and producer of a podcast called Scene on Radio. In his special 14-part series he dives deeply into how race and racism came into existence. Looking at where the idea of "whiteness" comes from and what that means. This podcast examines white supremacy, systemic inequality among races and the history of racism in this country. He hosts with an array of leading scholars and regular guest Dr. Chenjerai Kumanyika. Listen to this podcast! As challenging as it may be to listen to, it is of the utmost importance to learn where racism came from so we can end it.
Author, global speaker and podcast host Layla F. Saad "leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on Black, Indigenous and People of Color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too." The book came out after her workbook where she encourages "people with white privilege to examine their racist thoughts and behaviors".
