Sisters in Solidarity: Open Dialogue between AAPI and Black Women
Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) women and African American/Black women have a few things to talk about, namely solidarity. During the Black Lives Matter and Stop AAPI Hate movements, America saw women gather around each other to uplift their unique communities and fight to end horrid hate, bigotry, and violence. Critics, however, think Black women and AAPI women could have taken a stronger stand for each other. After all, gender-based violence, glass ceilings, and pay inequity transcend race and ethnicity. We’ll explore a history of Asian-Black solidarity juxtaposed against inter-minority racism and tensions. An important step, perhaps, in truly understanding these issues is open dialogue.
