Dose Of Blackness – Part 1
This has been the longest that this typically bi-weekly blog has gone without a "Dose". After George Floyd was tragically killed one month ago, as much as I love this blog and appreciate all of you who are interested in the Asian American experience and culture and take the time to read, I simply didn't feel it was the time to continue putting a light on Asian Americans. For the last month I wrestled with this and have decided that the right thing to do now, in this time, is to share this platform to others to speak on the African American experience. This blog has always been about broadening our awareness of, respect for, and interest in what "Asian-ness" entails. Today, we give the mic to voices from the Black community, and I'm very happy to introduce someone I worked with years ago and have a tremendous respect for - Leslie Wingo, President of Sanders / Wingo. Here is Leslie's story titled "George Floyd, Anger, frustration and a path forward"
