I Hope They Hear This

I Hope They Hear This

By David DH Shin
It is a very unique experience to grow up stuck between two cultures. The children of immigrants have to juggle the culture of the society they are in and the culture brought over by their parents. The metro Atlanta area is just now witnessing these "second generation" immigrants becoming adults and creating a whole new hybrid culture. I hope you hear our stories and opinions and that it will help us be seen and understood.

Also, although recorded before we became aware of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, we did have an interesting conversation about the Asian American community's response to injustices toward other minorities.
