If there’s a journalist we all think of immediately, it’s either Superman or Spiderman. They definitely have to straddle two identities. Dolly Li may not have a suit and tights, but she’s still a superhero in the world of Asian American journalism.
This incredible woman is a New Yorker of Chinese extraction sharing the stories of Asians worldwide while building cultural empathy. She’s done an incredible job. She worked for AJ+, was the Vice President of the Asian American Journalist Association, and is currently working at the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong.
This is a special episode for me because I’ve never spoken to a journalist before. She’s one with a very well formed opinion and heart seeking to share the stories of people rather than her own. Without further ado…
In Today’s Episode:
- How Dolly became a Journalist
- Who are the Chinese?
- Being harassed by border guards
- Meeting the Mississippi Delta Chinese
- And much more!

Dolly mentions there’s a tiny correction when she says the highest amount of deaths during WW2 after the holocaust were there in China.
