I interviewed my friend Nadinola Khae at Anime North in 2017 about why it was important for her to create the Black and Brown Folks like Anime Too! Panel. This was such a great interview and it’s crucial to record history in the nerd community because otherwise, we would not know how important conversations got started.
Unfortunately, my name was not listed in the published version on Black Girl Nerds and instead, it only has the published name of “Guest Blogger”. If anyone wants to verify then Nadinola would be able to vouch for me. Please check out the interview published on June 14, 2017, on Black Girl Nerds.
This interview was originally published on AnimeComplexium on March 24, 2016. Unfortunately, the website no longer exists and the original creator created a backup website to save the articles for contributors.
Re-reading this interview was nostalgic. It’s amazing how much my thoughts and feelings about identity has changed since I interviewed Vicko. I no longer identify as Latinx/Latine since it’s rooted in white supremacy, but this interview is still a good read since Vicko’s work is amazing. While this review is dated, please check out the original review on the backup website for AnimeComplexium.
