EPISODE #6 | Kesai Feels His Feelings

For many who identify as multiracial, being split between two cultures is cause for some much-needed soul searching. For Kesai, not having any connection with his father or other Black family members made it even harder to understand that part of his identity.

Looking back, I think it was in that moment when I was eight when I had the emotional breakdown that turned into an emotional breakthrough, that I was finally at peace not knowing my dad…My happiness isn’t dependent on knowing my father, it’s dependent on knowing me.
