New “Conversations” Series to Focus on Diversity< < Back to
A new series of “Conversations from Studio B” will focus on issues of diversity on campus and in the community. Hosted by WOUB’s Atish Baidya, these Conversations will feature members of the Scripps College of Communication Diversity Committee, as well as people who take an active role in diversity related issues.
First, WOUB’s Atish Baidya sat down with Tom Costello, chair of the diversity committee at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication, about the committees recent efforts in a time when issues of race and social justice are in the forefront of the country’s consciousness.
The second features photographer and author Alysia Burton Steele as she sits down with Atish Baidya to talk about her recent book, Delta Jewels: In Search of My Grandmother’s Wisdom. Steele drove more than 6,000 miles, criss-crossing the Mississippi Delta to collect the oral histories of women who lived in the delta through the Jim Crow era.
