“Three Miles” podcast

(Aired March 13, 2015)

Description: This podcast takes place through a prologue and two parts. Part I investigates what happens when a group of public school students in the Bronx visit an elite private school three miles away. Part II follows up with several of these students who are now in their mid-20s to discuss how this visit affected them. This podcast relates to discussions of justice and school policy and pairs well with Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Ta-Nahisi Coates’ Beyond the World and Me, and Chris Lebron’s “Thoughts on racial democratic education and moral virtue.”

Topics/Themes: Segregation
