NPR is launching a multimedia series this week called "Changing Races" reported by the network's "Code Switch" team of journalists focusing on racial issues and culture. The series includes a special online package at NPR.org and segments airing TODAY through THURSDAY (4/18) on MORNING EDITION, ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, TALK OF THE NATION, and TELL ME MORE.
First up is an online feature based on a piece by GENE DEMBY on "the shifting understanding of cultural ownership in the U.S.," following how hip-hop became global and multi-ethnic. On the air, the segments will include a piece on "code switching," a look at Korean hip-hop, a segment on OAKLAND's transition into multi-ethnicity, and demographic changes in the suburbs.
