Google Blog: A DJ’s mission to tell Asian American stories, track by track

Google Blog: A DJ’s mission to tell Asian American stories, track by track. “The Asian American community has faced erasure from popular American narratives and history, and are largely absent from mainstream American media. Partly because of this, Asians in America are seen as a monolith. ‘When I grew up, being Asian wasn’t something that most of us were told to be proud of,’ Richie says. This is why Richie spent over a year building TRAKTIVIST.com, a discovery platform dedicated to helping people find music made by Asian North Americans. TRAKTIVIST.com’s catalog also allows people to search for music by filtering ethnicity, instrument, genre and playlists.”
