WNY Conversations About Race

WNY Conversations About Race

WNY Conversations About Race

WBFO presents  a five-part series on race relations -- bringing people together to talk about equity, white privilege, systemic racism and diversity

Inspired by the intimate style of NPR’s Story Corps, the discussions feature a Buffalo-area person of color in dialogue with someone who is white.

Facilitated by WBFO reporter Thomas O’Neil White, the conversations feature people with different backgrounds but similar occupations or fields of interests.  In addition to the short feature heard on-air and featured in each of the stories below , extended versions of the conversations are also available here.

The Racial Equity Project is funded by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.
