Owning your identity starts with your name 76

A name has power which can sometimes take years to fully embrace. Marian Chia-Ming Liu is The Washington Post’s Operations Editor, and she joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why she reclaimed her Chinese middle name after waves of Asian-American violence made frontpage news, and the journey that brought her to a new understanding of who she is. Her recent essay is headlined “The Power of Reclaiming My Asian Name.”
