Black Lives and Asian Medicine
After the death of George Floyd, practitioners of traditional Asian medicine began to examine some of the racist biases that affected their own field. It quickly became apparent that the contributions of Black communities to both the practice and popularization of Asian medicine were missing from the histories that most practitioners know. Yi-Li Wu, associate professor of history and women's and gender studies and faculty associate at LRCCS, will discuss the role that the Black Panther Party and the Black Acupuncturist Association have played in bringing alternative Asian medical treatments to the United States. She will also discuss the process of self-reflection and study that led the journal, Asian Medicine, to critique its own racialized dynamics and commit to producing a special issue on this subject.
