Quality Program on PBS
I watched the story of Jack Johnson, the heavyweight boxing champion and Fidel Castro a few weeks ago. Tonight, I enjoyed watching "Slavery and the Making of America." I was also glad to see many Blacks are watching the documentary about their history.
The next anticipated documentary is about Malcolm X, which is showing on Monday, February 21st. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Malcolm X's assassination. I want to see whether Yuri Kochiyama is mentioned in the documentary.
I believe it is an injustice to history when the majority of Blacks don't know the connection between Malcolm X and Yuri. I have to believe that racial relations between Blacks and Asians can be better when more people realize our shared struggles.
Let's keep striving to raise awareness and fight for the monthly Asian Heritage, Black Heritage, Latino Heritage, and Human Heritage Celebration.
