Grace Lee on diversity and PBS, OIGO newsletter

Ernesto Aguilar—who publishes a newsletter about Latino/a, Latine, Latinx audiences and public media—talks with Grace about her critique, PBS’ response and BIPOC representation in public media.

“Grace Lee is a Peabody award-winning filmmaker. She most recently directed and produced programming broadcast on PBS. Other film credits include American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs (POV); Makers: Women in Politics (PBS); and K-Town ’92 Reporters (World). Her 2020 critique of Ken Burns and PBS sparked a new movement for diversity and public TV. Lee has since stepped away from film to become an advocate for more equitable work in public media. She’s today a co-founder of Beyond Inclusion and host of the Viewers Like Us podcast.

For OIGO, we get into her activism and why everyone should be more involved in addressing public television’s future.”
