Color Commentary

Fridays at 6:01 pm
Color Commentary gives the underrepresented or excluded a voice.

Fridays at 6:01pm during Left, Right & Center.

Color Commentary is a program intended to help KSER listeners better understand issues that affect the lives of persons of color or others whose culture, language, religion, sexual orientation, or mental or physical abilities may mean that bias, discrimination, or racism based on fear, ignorance or hate undermine their ability to engage in and benefit from all that our communities have to offer.

The program uses personal interviews, recorded presentations, issue analyses and current events reporting to help provide information and insight on a range of topics. A key objective is to give those who have historically been underrepresented or excluded a voice and to help the community at large to hear, understand and accept that voice.
