What people experience as minorities in America can vary based on gender, sexual orientation, religion or ethnic group. But sometimes there are overlaps in these narratives. A new class at Spelman and Morehouse Colleges explores relations between African-Americans and Asian-Americans through the lens of history.
Rebecca Kumar teaches the class called "How Does It Feel To Be A Problem?" We chat with her and two of her students who say their own experiences as African-Americans have shed a light on similar struggles facing Asian-Americans.
