 Dmae Roberts is a two-time Peabody award-winning independent radio artist and writer who has written and produced more than 400 audio art pieces and documentaries for NPR and PRI programs.  Her work is often autobiographical or about cross-cultural peoples and is informed by her biracial identity. Her Peabody award-winning documentary "Mei Mei, a Daughter's Song" is a harrowing account of her mother's childhood in Taiwan during WWII.  Her most recent project has been Crossing East, the first Asian American history series on public radio which just garnered a Peabody award.   The eight-hour series took three years to produce and ran on more than 230 stations around the country.

She received the Dr. Suzanne Award for Civil Rights and Social Justice from the Asian American Journalists Association and was one of 50 artists around the country to be selected recently for the 2007 United States Artists (USA) Fellowship.  Other awards  include the Peabody, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism award, the Casey Medal, the United Nations Silver award, two Clarion Awards, two Heart of America awards, and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Award.

As the executive producer of MEDIARITES, a non-profit organization dedicated to multicultural arts production in radio and educational outreach, she continues her personal mission to create works that bring diverse communities together.
