The inspiring way hundreds of Asian Americans are teaching their families about Black Lives Matter

Christina Xu

D&S advisor Christina Xu discussed the creation of an open Google document devised to help Asian Americans discuss why Black Lives Matter is important to relatives.

“When people were unsure about what to do or uncomfortable with assuming authority, they started a comment thread that invited other people to give feedback,” said Xu, who came to the United States when she was 7. “It was kind of the Internet at its best.”
