Host Eliza Romero is joined by Dr. Leny Mendoza Strobel, author of Coming Full Circle: The Process of Decolonization for Post-1965 Filipino Americans, and Marion Aguas, an NYC-based photographer. Together they discuss the process of decolonization, why everyone should consider it, and the different developmental stages.
We also touch on that hot button topic of interracial relationships between Filipino women and white men and how one can disinvest in whiteness when you've married your oppressor.
