Kristina Wong Takes on Race and Hashtag Activism in Her One-Woman Show 'The Wong Street Journal'

Last winter, I caught up with performance artist Kristina Wong while she was doing a residency at the Montalvo Arts Center just outside Silicon Valley, developing material for her new one-woman show "The Wong Street Journal". There in a loft, she was writing material as well as doing the less glamorous work of sewing felt props for her show, which opens this week in her hometown of San Francisco. I checked in with Kristina again recently to find out what's new....more

The World's Reaction When Queer White Moms Raise Adopted Black Kids

“Intersectionality” may be a new term, but it isn’t a new idea. It is the very thing Sojourner Truth was getting at in her “Aren’t I a Woman” speech in 1851. Black women in the United States have always known that “woman” was a complicated idea—their own “womanhood” often sacrificed to the “ideal” of white womanhood. ...more

As a Biracial Woman, I May Look Like Rachel Dolezal But I Don't Have the Privilege of Leaving

When the news broke about former Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who stepped down as of today, being a white woman posing as Black, I spent time commenting here and there on various media accounts. On more than one occasion, some friend-of-a-friend noted how much we look alike. It’s not a fair comparison, I believe, because it’s as superficial as her coloring of skin and eyes. I know far too well what it’s like to have my Blackness called into question....more

Black (Children's) Lives Matter: Why Is Our Suicide Rate So High?

The first time I thought about killing myself, I was eleven. I’d had some trauma in my life, unspeakable things that my tween self could not articulate. Pain that ran deep, seated into my soul. I could not get away from it. Image Credit: Sam D via Flickr...more

Kids & Art Brings the Comfort of Creativity to Children With Cancer

A conference room at Google headquarters may not seem like a place for children to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon, but for the 50 or youngsters gathered there last weekend, it was a welcome break from the world of doctor’s appointments and medical treatments. I had brought my own 10-year-old son to the event, which was organized by Kids & Art, a non-profit started by graphic designer Purvi Shah, the creator of BlogHer’s “hermoticon” logo. ...more
