"YOU WANT FLOWER?": Fighting Anti-Blackness in Our Nail Salons while Painting Your Nails! (DICE)


Time: Friday, January 25, 2019 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Location: Alonso Family Room, Ohio Union

Elizabeth Dang, a third-year student and licensed manicurist, will be leading discussions on unpacking the racial tension that exists between the Black and Vietnamese communities within nail salons. "Nail salon fight" videos frequently go viral on social media, typically showing a Black female and Vietnamese employee engaging in verbal arguments or physical altercations. Opening the discussion to recognize where both communities intersect in racial inequality is vital to combat the tension and to create more solidarity for all. Attendees will also be encouraged to learn how to paint their own nails!

This is part of the APIDA Heritage Month 2019
