Nathaniel Bozarth: Race and Privilege in Kansas City

nathaniel bozarth on the podcast

Nathaniel Bozarth calls himself a storyteller and curious individual. Trained in the techniques of anthropology, Nathaniel strives to see the small (the minute details that are often overlooked), to see the big (the overarching systems that inform how we live) and to see the seeing (the biases and assumptions that interpret how we see). Nathaniel has produced two web documentaries that are available online for free: Your Fellow Americans and Re:Dream [pronounced Re-Dream]. Both series look at how issues of race and identity affect opportunity in America through the eyes of diverse individuals.

Nathaniel Bozarth now hosts and produces Wide Ruled, a podcast on the past and present of equality in education.
