Tim Wise

Boston, Massachusetts

March 29, 2003

This is a recording of Tim Wise speaking about "Race and the Peace Movement: Challenging Racism and White Privilege". He addressed an audience at the Church of the Covenant in Boston, Massachusetts, after a large anti-war demonstration on March 29, 2003.

Tim Wise is one of the leading social critics on race and racism in the United States. Hailing from the state of Tennessee, he is the Director of the Association for White Anti-Racist Education (AWARE) in Nashville. He lectures across the country about the need to combat institutional racism, gender bias, and the growing gap between rich and poor in the U.S. Wise has been called a "leftist extremist" by David Duke, "deceptively Aryan-looking" by a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and "the Uncle Tom of the white race," by right-wing author, Dinesh D'Souza. Apparently, he knows how to make the right kinds of enemies.

In this recording, we will get to hear some of the ideas that have earned him his reputation.

Tim Wise was introduced by Paul Marcus, co-director of Community Change in Boston. [The introduction sets the theme and the tone of the evening, and lasts about seven minutes.]

Special thanks to Martin Voelker for essential technical support that made this recording possible.

[Please note: Due to some technical difficulties, there are occasional "scratchy noises" in the recording. Also, Wise speaks rather loudly, so the levels are a bit distorted. However, they have been made more even in post-production. It shouldn't be too bad if you're listening at home, but broadcasters will need to consider these problems.]
