Welcome to Season 2, Episode 3!  We begin this episode with some current events, but we take time to talk about chocolate as well! The main segment is in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as we focus on two more Asian Pacific American Civil Rights Leaders, Kiyoshi Kuromiya and Haunani-Kay Trask. Both were inspirational leaders with an  impact in the U.S. and across the world. We close out the show by highlighting the organization SEARAC that helps promote equity for everyone but focuses on Southeast Asians. To learn more about our the Haunani-Kay Trask, we recommend that you visit this collection of video clips and writing by Haunani-Kay Trask.
