We Live Here #3: Growing Up Apart
In our third podcast, We Live Here curators Tim Lloyd and Emanuele Berry meer students from across the St. Louis region as they consider their views on race. Whether it’s students from predominantly white high schools or predominantly black, they don’t want to inherit the segregated system that exists now.
But changing it isn’t as easy as they think.
We also met students in a journalism class at one of the few racially mixed high schools in the region: Ritenour. Will Rivers and Brandon King have been close friends for years. Brandon is white, Will is black. But it wasn’t until they reported on a region-wide summit on race that they actually discussed race and racism with each other. We explore how that could happen as well.
