Chandra Crane Owns Her Superpower
On multiethnic identity formation, overlooked stories, and helping to build bridges.
From fighting stereotypes to redefining isolating spaces, Asian American author Chandra Crane is an expert at disruption. But that doesn't mean it's easy—coming from a multiethnic and multicultural background, she's had to work to complicate oversimplified conversations.
"It's actually a blessing to complicate things...It breaks up this conversation which assumes that everybody is either completely privileged or completely oppressed. So I think it pushes back on that and reminds us that we all have pain that needs to be healed and needs to be cared for."
In this episode of the Disrupters, Esau McCaulley and Chandra Crane discuss multiethnic identity formation, overlooked stories, and helping to build bridges—without becoming one.
