[Amplify a Voice: Being Black And Feeling Safer Away From America]

Over the past few days I read a request from a person of color to white people – to amplify their voices instead of our own. That resonates. Please read what π“π‘πž 𝐁π₯𝐚𝐜𝐀 π„π±π©πžπ«π’πžπ§πœπž π‰πšπ©πšπ§ (𝐁𝐄𝐉) published on theirΒ YouTube page. If you’d like your voice amplified, anonymously or with citation, my blog, my social accounts, and everything I am is yours. #BlackLivesMatter #NotOneMore

Being black is an experience unlike any other. With recent events we are reminded what that means for many of us. We have interviewed hundreds of black people across Asia and we’ve discovered that most of us feel safer away from home. This video highlights the stark difference between the experiences of these black people in Asia versus their experience back home in America and elsewhere. Many of the people we’ve interviewed feel safer away from home.

With all that’s taking place today, our hope is that we can take a significant leap forward in the direction of change.
