Black and Asian-American Communities: A Conversation on Solidarity
with Mycal Ford, Eileen Huang, Dolly Li 

Participant Details

TIME: Monday November 23, 2020, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST 

PLATFORM: Zoom Meeting (log-in information will be provided following event sign-up)

DESCRIPTION: In light of the Black Lives Matter movement and the rise in anti-Asian physical and verbal attacks in the United States, cross-racial allyship is needed now more than ever. During this pivotal time, there has been little discussion about the current racial tensions between Black and Asian communities within a historical and current analysis of Black and Asian solidarity.

Join the National Committee on November 23 at 4:00 p.m. EST for a virtual program with Mycal Ford, Eileen Huang, and Dolly Li as they discuss the history of Black and Asian tensions and solidarity, unpack the notion of Yellow Lives Matter, and explore tangible methods of mobilization that will help to bridge the divide between these two groups.
