ANTIRACISM AND RACIAL JUSTICE
We must each recognize and hold ourselves accountable for racism in America — from its most granular, interpersonal manifestations to its systemic expression in our communities, economies, institutions and rule of law.
Recognizing bias and unlearning the practice of racism demands education, listening and action on all of our parts, and PBS Wisconsin shares in this collective and urgent imperative. Public media’s strength is providing accessible resources that educate, inform and inspire — shining a bright light on the complexities and contradictions of our history, and gathering our community in dialogue and reflection.
Below we offer a substantial and evolving collection of national and local on-demand media from PBS and PBS Wisconsin to begin (un)learning together. Selections come from trusted programs like Independent Lens, POV, and PBS NewsHour, along with local PBS Wisconsin productions which gather and chronicle the stories of our state.
This collection lends particular focus to the Black experience in America and in Wisconsin, and the persistence of anti-Black racism. It speaks to the institution of slavery in the United States from 1619 and through its manifold echoes that fuel widespread inequality and injustice today.
These resources also see and celebrate Black lives — our American history and present suffused with Black excellence, resistance, joy, love and liberation.
