USA Today interview

USA Today published an essay written by Michelle titled “Pain Spoken as Anger” as part of a larger article titled “AAPI Pride: Asian and Pacific Islander heritage helps lift America to what it must be.” Michelle’s excerpt reflects on the impact “Listen Asshole” had in 2001 and its ongoing relevance in giving voice to the pain and anger experienced by Asian Americans as a result of racism and discrimination 20 years later. The essay was printed on May 17, 2021 and is available online to subscribers. USA Today also interviewed Michelle about the film project, which can be viewed online here.
