Catching up with Kimberly Reed, one of the Duke students who originated tenting

(06/21/20 1:41am)

Kimberly Reed, Trinity '86, was part of the group of students who originated the annual Krzyzewskiville tradition of tenting for the home North Carolina game, a story that was introduced in a 2001 Chronicle article. Reed has since appeared in a number of other stories and documentaries, including HBO's "Battle for Tobacco Road" documentary, ACC Network's "ACC Traditions" series and The Chronicle's tenting documentary. 

Why Asian Americans should care about Black Lives Matter

(06/11/20 4:00am)

In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and other Black victims at the hands of the police and racist perpetrators, NYU’s Lambda Phi Epsilon, the Asian-interest community, has shown complete disdain for the Black community through its racist GroupMe messages that leaked to Twitter. At the same time, some of my upper-middle class Asian neighbors in my town on Long Island, N.Y., have expressed anti-Black sentiment as they feared the local luxury boutiques and their own businesses would get looted. Their concerns about the repairable property damage and financial losses had morphed into racist hate speech and a complete disregard of the lost and irreplaceable Black lives that prompted these protests and riots.

The debut tells the 29-year-old Japanese-British songwriter’s story in heartfelt detail, combining musical genres with impeccable vocal deliveries and refreshingly honest lyricism. 

Netflix's 'Hollywood' is not as progressive as it wants to be

(06/07/20 5:37am)

As each day of the coronavirus pandemic passes by, I find myself gravitating toward classic Hollywood movies, imagining what life would be like on the silver screen rather than behind my computer screen. For the past few months, I’ve been conditioned to seek comfort in the escapist fantasies of the post-war media I consume instead of confronting the realities around me, especially since my plans for the near future are completely up in the air.

Grief, community and the new normal

(06/05/20 4:08am)

On May 24, The New York Times printed on its front page the names of 1,000 victims, just 1% of the over 100,000 people who have lost their lives to COVID-19. Among them, a newlywed, a jazz pianist, an educator and a portraitist — all members of a greater community. With any disaster, the mind takes time to adjust to the loss of mentors, friends and loved ones, especially when they are not our own. For some, myself included, it is difficult to feel anything at all, save for a numb listlessness, while others are feeling intense despair and hopelessness. Both emotional states can be considered symptoms of grief in the wake of such staggering loss.
