How Publishing's Whiteness Affects Our Reading, Writing

"A 2015 survey by Publishers Weekly found that 89 percent of people working at publishing houses are white,"(audio) Sarah Mirk wrote Thursday for her "Popaganda" column on bitchmedia.org.

"There's been a lot of organizing to diversify the publishing industry. For example, a campaign called We Need Diverse Books has been publicizing the demand for more books by and about people of color. But change has been slow. The publishing industry often seems to move at a glacial pace.

"On today's show, we're exploring the impact that the overwhelming whiteness of the publishing industry has on how Americans write, read, and respond to books. We talk with journalists about the complexities of writing about race and hear from authors in Los Angeles, Colorado, and Montana about what it’s like to be a writer of color in a very white industry.

"This show features interviews with author Erika T. Wurth, Northwestern journalism professor Deborah Douglas, and writer/journalism student Rebekah Frumkin, plus essays by Lisa Lee and Ari Laurel. Tune in!"
