‘Black Voices in China’
What inspired me to direct and produce this round table discussion was a ‘Qiaobi’ detergent commercial that aired in China. The commercial sparked a lot of racially insinsitive backlash world-wide. China has over 2 million African descendant people living there today. As we were just a group of those Black people who were currently in China during the backlash, it was an opportunity to broad cast to the world what we felt needed to be shared. The intentional purpose was not to draw a line and take sides but to provide a platform for all voices to be heard and communicate with each other around this topic.
This video was trending on ‘Africa News Hub.’
