The recent uptick in violence against people of Asian and Pacific Island (API) heritage, while of deep concern, is hardly new. A look at what grade-school children are taught--and not taught--about the history of racial intolerance for API groups is instructive. Retired teacher and racial justice activist Alexandra Lee-Jobe joins Autumn Labbe-Renault for a discussion about the need for Ethnic Studies in general, and the "Red Altar" project and curriculum in particular. #API #ethnicstudies #DEI #schools #communitymedia #DavisCA #yolocounty
