Diane Wong's Black Multiracial Family Stories

Updated: Sep 6, 2020

In this workshop series, we tell our family’s stories. Stories until now, concealed, untold and secret. Our stories are America's story and the story of race that has resonance for today. We are proud to share our black family stories to help us understand how what happened years ago still plays out today. By telling our stories of race and racism, we help to enhance the story of race in America today. Relax and enjoy as this blog unfolds the Wong family stories.
