Tim Wise: White Like Me

White Like Me by Tim Wise
White Like Me by Tim Wise

  Author Tim Wise is an anti-race activist who writes and lectures about his thoughts on race from the perspective of a white man and his experiences. He joins us to talk about race and racism in politics, culture, the media and business, and how he uses his position as a white male to educate people about things like "white denial," "white privilege" and outright racism. We'll also talk about what local organizations are doing to educate the community about these topics as well, when Charlotte Talks.
