As part of the digital storytelling project Racism Unveiled, the series reveals true stories of racism experienced by Indigenous, Black, Asian and other people of color who call this state home. Along with a promise of anonymity, each subject interviewed has a hand in designing their own character and giving it a pseudonym. No roosters were harmed in the making of this series.
