The secret to changing the world: Lee Mun Wah at TEDx

 

"Lee Mun Wah is an internationally renowned Chinese American documentary filmmaker, author, poet, Asian folk teller, educator, community therapist and master diversity trainer.


He is the Founder and Executive Director of StirFry Seminars & Consulting, a diversity training company that provides educational tools and workshops on cross-cultural communication and awareness, mindful facilitation, and conflict mediation techniques.


His most famous film about racism, The Color of Fear, won the Gold Medal for Best Social Studies Documentary and in 1995, Oprah Winfrey did a one-hour special on the film and Lee Mun Wah's life.


In 2013, he will be releasing his latest film, If These Halls Could Talk, which focuses on college students speaking their truth about racism and other diversity issues in higher education and beyond.


Lee Mun Wah talks about the power of cultural perspective and the need to reach beyond the superficial in making cross-cultural connections.'

Lee Mun Wah, not afraid to confront the topic of race. 

 

Regarding the last part of his speech, about entering another person's home - that's how you can tell how much segregation still exists in one's world.
