This edition: Diversity Disparity

Episode Details

Original tape date: September 21, 2015.

First aired: September 23, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we explore why New York City’s booming tech sector is majority white and what can be done to help "Silicon Alley" reflect more of the city’s diversity. We talk about the role of unions in helping minority workers bridge the racial pay divide. Then, we learn about an upcoming playwrights festival that focuses on the work of African creators.
