“Racism in New England” Project Examines Racial Bias in New England

The death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd left many around the globe feeling angered, confused and inspired to do more.  

Traci Griffith is a former radio journalist and current associate professor of media studies at Saint Michael’s College. Griffith joined forces with the New England News Collaborative to share stories of the bias against people of color across a perceived liberal New England.   

That collaboration resulted in a four-part series, Racism in New England. The series is currently running across public media channels and online.

Connecting Point’s Dara Kennedy asked if Griffith’s subjects would support diversity on the presidential ticket by bringing out the voiceless vote.
