Worth Repeating | Texas Public Radio

Worth Repeating

A Worth Repeating that explores racism in our city. San Antonians share their stories of self-realization about biases, latent racism or entitlement, experiencing racism personally, navigating the web of systemic, structural and institutional racism, addressing and confronting bias and racism in the real world and stories about activism and efforts to dismantle racism at every level.

 This Worth Repeating will be a virtual event on Facebook. RSVP here.   

Worth Repeating is made possible by support from the 80|20 Foundation, and sponsorship from Generations Federal Credit Union, Niche at Pearl, the Mind Science Foundation, and Shiner Beer

During our season once a month, 7 storytellers will have 7 minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme.

Think This American Life or The Moth, but sourced from your friends and neighbors. Public Radio tries daily to educate San Antonio about the world, now we want San Antonio to tell us about itself and its people.
