Korea’s black racism epidemic

Black racism story coverMy blow-out feature for Groove on anti-black racism in Korea. Six months of research, dozens of interviews across three continents, an uncountable amount of internet and book research, plenty of legwork, and it came down to this 6000 word feature. Cover story for February 2014, it was widely featured, discussed, reddited, argued over, and debated throughout the country. Winner of Groove Magazine’s Insight Story of the Year, 2014.
