White Supremacy, Arts, Activism, and the APIA Diaspora

Audio not available
Earlier this month, the abhorrent violence white supremacists committed against counter protesters in Charlottesville and the administration’s lackadaisical response continues to embolden a more visible white supremacist movement. Even in the most politically turbulent times, artists and activists have and continue to find the space for hope, unity across struggles, and vision for a better future. At present, the Asian American movement is one that is ever evolving with the changing face of the APIA diaspora, building solidarity with other movements, and understanding anti-blackness, white supremacy, and anti-Asian history in the United States. Kuttin Kandi, a People's DJ Scholar and Adele Pham, a documentary/director filmmaker, share their perspectives.

Climate Justice for South Asia

Audio not available
Recent studies suggest that unchecked climate change could make parts of South Asia unlivable later this century. Already, blistering heat waves and endemic flooding kill thousands each year in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and across South Asia, which is home to a quarter of the world’s population. So what does the U.S. do? It drops out of global climate change accords and just keeps polluting. As calls for North-South climate justice rise, we spoke with South Asian American activists working to build accountability and decolonize the climate. Barnali Ghosh of Brown and Green: South Asian Americans for Climate Justice and Dr. Rajwant Singh of EcoSikh discuss why this issue matters to us all.
