Misasha Suzuki Graham, author, speaker, and podcaster, of the amazing duo behind Dear White Women, joins Jerry on Episode 131 of Dear Asian Americans to share her story of being a biracial Japanese American and the impact she wants to have on the world for her multiracial sons leveraging her privilege and platform. Be sure to check out her partner Sara's episode on 130!
Meet Misasha, in her own words:
"A graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Law School, I've been a practicing litigator for over 15 years, and am passionate about diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal profession as well as in my communities. I'm a facilitator, writer, and speaker regarding issues of racial justice and children, the co-author of Dear White Women: Let’s Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism, and the co-host of Dear White Women, a social justice podcast. I'm also the biracial daughter of a Japanese immigrant, married to a Black man, and the proud mom of two very active multiracial young boys. We live in the Bay Area of California with our largely indifferent cat."
About Dear White Women
Dear White Women is an award-winning weekly podcast dedicated to helping White women use their privilege to uproot systemic racism. The show is hosted by Sara & Misasha, two biracial (Japanese and White) daughters of immigrants who’ve been best friends since they met at Harvard nearly 25 years ago. Misasha is a lawyer, amateur historian, and is married to a Black man; Sara is a life coach, facilitator, and is married to a White Canadian man. Together, as moms of very mixed-race children, they help White women use their privilege to uproot systemic racism - most recently with joint consulting work and the publication of their book Dear White Women: Let’s Get (Un)comfortable Talking About Racism.
