Navigating Race in the Workplace

Beyond the Scenes from The Daily Show

13-06-2023 • 33 mins

At the height of the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests, Daily Show producer Chelsea Williamson posed a question on Instagram: “If you’re Black and my friend, can you tell me what racial things have happened to you at your job?” The responses led Chelsea to pitch a segment exploring what it’s like to be Black in overwhelmingly white workplaces. Chelsea and former Daily Show writer Christiana Mbakwe-Medina join Roy to discuss the resulting piece and their personal experiences, from being called “too professional” to going from “pet to threat.”
