Farai Chideya On Traveling While Brown

Traveling can be a liberating experience. For people of color it can be surprising in different ways.

Guest host Raquel Cepeda spoke to novelist and journalist Farai Chideya about an article she wrote, Traveling While Black, that was featured in the New York Times.

Chideya wrote about traveling to Africa as a healing experience. She says she learned that most of the world is “brownish,” which gave her a new perspective on identity.



Farai Chideya has combined media, technology, and socio-political analysis during her 20-year career as an award-winning author, journalist, professor, and lecturer. She is a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. She was also a spring 2012 fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics.
