Hard NOC Live at the Smithsonian #CrossLines: Ellen Oh

Continuing our special live recordings of Hard NOC Life from the Smithsonian’s CrossLines pop-up culture lab on intersectionality. We were joined by young adult fantasy author and online activist, Ellen Oh.

On the heels of last month’s #whitewashedOUT hashtag, Ellen and Keith discuss the campaign’s origins, Ellen’s past experience in hashtag activism with We Need Diverse Books, and the bridge between a diverse publishing industry and an inclusive Hollywood. They also discuss Ellen’s writing career and her influences.

All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.

Special thanks to Lawrence Minh-Bui Davis and Adriel Luis from the Smithsonian APA for inviting us to be a part of CrossLines!
