What’s your experience with race and racism at the University of Richmond?

In October 2017, a cohort of students, faculty, and staff worked with radio creator and producer Kelley Libby to practice audio recording skills and to produce a brief audio piece for the Race & Racism at the University of Richmond Project. Faculty members Dr. Patricia Herrera and Dr. Nicole Maurantonio, project archivist Irina Rogova, junior Joanna Hejl, and senior Cory Schutter roamed the University of Richmond campus on a brisk Saturday morning posing one question to passerbys: What’s your experience with race and racism at the University of Richmond?

The below audio piece (with subtitles embedded) is a sampling of the answers they received. Thank you to Kelley Libby for editing, and to seniors Destiny Riley and Cory Schutter for narrating the piece.
