Season Two, Episode Six: The Representative
George McCalman is an artist and graphic designer—a black artist and graphic designer—and today’s episode is all about him feeling that way, as an other, for the first time.
Our awareness of an "ism" can lead to loneliness, and in George’s case, that ism was racism. After living much of his life in New York City feeling part of the community, he suddenly felt like an outsider, because of an episode at a magazine where he worked in his twenties.
Listen as he shares his story.
