  5. Episode 31: Turning the Lens (Seeing White, Part 1) – Scene on Radio

    February 15, 2017

    I am a 74 year old white woman and I am sick with sorrow. I too flinch at my whiteness.

    I was in Tuscaloosa Alabama when George Wallace stood in the door at the University of Alabama. I was there when my President, John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

    The white children cheered in their all white schools. I stood in the kitchen of the kindergarten where I worked with my only friend, Zolina.

    She and I clung to each other, crying and praying when it was still unclear whether he would survive or not.

    Oh, such horror and heartbreak. I am a white woman.

    She, a beautiful black woman.

    I can’t imagine her heart was breaking any more than mine.

    But

    I know that can’t be right. She went home to cross burnings, hopelessness and terrors I can’t even imagine. And then, all these years later, the miracle of President Obama!

    I was over joyed and amazed and he proved to be a very great President. Maybe even the best ever.

    Now, here we are. What does it mean.

    How can we change this? Can we change it?

    As I said, I am sick with sorrow. I know love is the answer.

    But how and when?
