We Live Here | Season 3

Season 3 of We Live Here spanned June 2017 to March 2018.
It was hosted and produced by Kameel Stanley and Tim Lloyd. Alona Sistrunk joined as a producer in March.

  • In this bonus episode, We Live Here cracks open its vault and shares never-before-heard parts of an interview with Wiley. He gets into the fascination people have with a black artist painting white bodies; a concept he calls “cultural policing;” and the impoliteness of exclusion.
  • Decades of population loss and systemic disinvestment has left "The Ville" a shell of its former self.
  • In this episode, hosts Tim and Kameel hand the mics to the community: Stories about black love, a woman who finds peace in her identity and spirituality, an outspoken politician who once struggled to speak for herself and three St. Louis artists — including a young poet, a country music performer and a singer-songwriter who are all grappling with the ideas of place and home.
  • There have been near-daily protests in St. Louis following the September 2017 acquittal of a white police officer who killed a black man six years ago. And mounting allegations of excessive use of force by police officers responding to those protests. As all this pressure from the outside builds, we’re coming at the issue of police accountability from a different angle.
  • Two women, a generation apart, sift through the scars of segregation and returning to a neighborhood that doesn't resemble what they remembered.
  • People wanting to know if it was true that Missouri snatched back a wage increase from the lowest-paid workers in St. Louis. Short answer? Yes. But today’s show isn’t about that short answer.
  • We go through responses we’ve collected about the word woke and we spend time with regular people -- many of them white -- trying to figure out, in light of everything going on, where they fit on this spectrum.
  • We’ll listen in as Damon Davis and Sabaah Folayan, producers of the critically acclaimed documentary ‘Whose Streets,’ talk about their choice to make the film and how they hope it will become a lasting document.
  • We share the story of three playwrights who penned monologues about their experiences as black men in America. This is the first of two shows we're using to explore art and activism during the month of August.
