Asian American Granite Staters Reflect On Unity, Identity, & Safety After Attacks In Atlanta

Demostrator holds sign that says Stop Asian Hate.
Cori Princell; NHPR

Violent attacks against Asian Americans have invigorated an examination of our nation's long history of racism against people from this wide, diverse group. In New Hampshire these conversations arose at Stop Asian Hate rallies earlier this month. We reflect on this current moment, and welcome Asian American Granite Staters to join the conversation.

Air Date: Tuesday, March 30, 2021.
