Synopsis

Content Warning: This conversation includes racially and/or culturally derogatory language and/or negative depictions of Black and Indigenous people of color, women, and LGBTQI+ individuals. Rather than remove this content, we present it in the context of twentieth-century social history to acknowledge and learn from its impact and to inspire awareness and discussion. Unlike Disney's Donald Donald, this "Donald Duk" is 12-year-old boy who hates his last name and who hates his Chinese background and culture. Chin, also spends time going over characters from his book.
