The Pride

leave a comment »

It’s a mini documentary but it’s still interesting.  Our Pride: the Spirits of Black Japanese in Georgia is a 32 minute movie by Yohei Suzuki about the offspring of African American fathers and Japanese mothers and how the individuals deal with being biracial/bicultural.

“We need to know how to deal with the issues and how to socialize with individuals of other ethnicities.  This documentary will uncover the existence of Blackanese and their ethnic pride,” Suzuki said in an interview with his college newsletter.  Suzuki realizes there are racial tensions between Japanese Americans and African Americans and hopes his documentary will bring “new culture into both communities”.
