About Diane Wong

Born into a Black, Chinese, Mexican, Irish, & Native American family, Diane grew up as a member of Cleveland’s Black community and attended a segregated school system.

Diane believes that race is a conversation in which America must learn to participate. She founded Let’s Talk About Race in 2017.
