I’ve been so lucky to have the opportunity to tell the stories I’m passionate about on such a big scale. It means so much to me that BofA recognizes these challenges. That’s why I am directing the bank’s sizable Social Equality grant to the Center for Asian American Media – so that we pay it forward to the next generation of Asian American storytellers such that this work feels just a little bit less impossible.
The documentary series presents eight short films made by emerging BIPOC filmmakers that illuminate the living histories, cultures, and prospective futures of the American Midwest.
Premieres Thursday, May 4 on PBS Digital Platforms including the PBS YouTube Channel, PBS Digital Studios and the PBS App.
