Breathtaking work by @abscribe and colleagues on this incredibly ambitious project, a work of visual and historical 3D reconstruction and deep reporting on the vibrant Black district destroyed in the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Has to be seen: https://t.co/XZNfgWTddK

Chloé Zhao just quoted 三字經, the "Three Character Classic," in accepting the #Oscars for Best Director (first woman of color to win!!): 「人之初,性本善」 "People at birth, are fundamentally good."

“His name was George Perry Floyd Jr.” Those words from a prosecutor in Chauvin trial signaled a departure from an old playbook: dehumanizing Black police violence victims. Does it signal lasting change? I explore w/⁦@tarangoNYT⁩ ⁦@shailadewanhttps://t.co/hcQ65rnaiN

The treatment of media by police in Minneapolis has been unacceptable, and accounts fr journalists of color are esp disturbing. Carolyn Sung, an Asian-American CNN producer, thrown to the ground, arrested. A trooper yelling at her, "Do you speak English?" https://t.co/mf4PwlrsFM

CNN producer Carolyn Sung was wrongfully arrested by Minnesota state troopers on Tuesday night. This letter from a group of media outlets describes how she was mistreated and held for more than two hours https://t.co/2OqXWrN55G
