Immigration Nerds Talk about the Model Minority Myth

In this week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, we talk to Dr. Sarah-Soonling Blackburn, an educator and personal development trainer, who focuses on strategies to optimize learning environments with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. In Dr. Blackburn’s research on the Asian American experience in the classroom, she stumbled upon the model minority myth. In this conversation, we discuss this stigma, what it means, how it affects the psychology of Asian Americans, and what we can do to further efforts in solidarity with all cultures.
