Telling Our Stories with Sopan Deb
Hello Spilling Chai, Listeners! Welcome to Episode 5 of Season 2 coming to you from Washington, DC.
Being a writer during a pandemic has made me think a lot about not just our stories but who gets to tell them. Being a brown person in America, an immigrant, a person of color, means that narratives are often framed for you by well, your brownness.
But the work of our guest today has been instrumental in reminding people not only how important representation is but how important it is that we ourselves get to choose, and own, how our stories are told.
I am talking about author and New York Times writer, Sopan Deb!
