Ethnic Identity and the Power of Being Undefined | Anish Shroff | TEDxFargo

Written by rts007

Anish Shroff reflects on the cultural resistance he​ encountered while pursuing the career path of his dreams. Through the prism of a first generation Indian-American, Shroff highlights why minority culture can shackle its own members in a prison reinforced by stereotypes and loosely defined ethnic authenticity. Instead of defining and redefining ourselves, Shroff explores the power and possibilities that exist with being “undefined.”
