On Asian America: Not backing down

The surge of hate crimes committed against Asian Americans has swelled since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. It's a sad but known truth that racial hatred against Asians (or racial hatred, in general) isn't just a new phenomenon in the United States.

But neither is standing up to that hatred.

In this episode of Speakers Forum, we present part two of the On Asian America series, a collaboration between Humanities Washington, KUOW Public Radio, Spokane Public Radio, and Northwest Public Broadcasting.

The goal of the series is to amplify Asian voices and spark an ongoing dialogue about the experiences and contributions of Asian communities in our state. This episode is hosted by Doug Nadvornick and Rebecca White of Spokane Public Radio.

You can listen to Part 1 here.
