This week on Militantly Mixed I am joined by Ph.D student Ayumi Matsuda Rivero. We talk about her own Mixed Venezuelan and Japanese heritage as well as how her identity had to shift depending on where in the world she was living. Listen in to see how her own experiences contributed to her academic work in Mixed Race Studies.
