  • Seeing White (Scene On Radio) “White folks may feel like we’re being stabbed a little bit when our whiteness is mentioned because for the most part, we get to go through life imagining that race is something other people have,” says host and producer John Biewen in one episode of his Seeing White program. Biewen’s 14-part series is an excellent primer on the history of whiteness in America, sharing lesser-known events that will inspire white listeners to see their own place in society with fresh eyes.
