As the Black Lives Matter movement spread across America earlier this summer, many Asian Americans began to reflect on their personal history of struggling for racial equality. 

In particular, one civil rights group has pushed for attitude change among Asians to reach across the racial divide and join African Americans and other communities of color in the fight for social justice.

In Season 5 True Colors: Episode 6, Jenny Chiang and Dr. Mabel Lam of the Asian American Commission (AAC) in the state of Massachusetts share their personal story of growing up with and without Black friends, and their own reckoning with the urgent need to come together for the greater good.

Listen to our conversation here.

To whom do you feel indebted for your civil rights and citizenship status in America? 

Your parents or your parents’ parents? Or yourself?

Frankly, I had never considered this question until I came across Eileen Huang’s critical letter  urging the Chinese American community to confront their anti-Black racist statements and stereotypes. 

In her words, “We owe them (referring to Africans Americans) everything.”

In Season 5 True Colors: Episode 5 “We Owe Them”, Eileen makes a case for Asians to acknowledge what she perceives as our racist attitude against Black people in America, and to begin difficult conversations with our parents' generation.

Eileen Huang is a creative writer, and a junior at Yale University.
