Asian Americana 014 - Kala Bagai

"What was it like for a South Asian woman immigrating to the US in the early 20th century, and how did she build a community over her lifetime? And why name a street in Berkeley after Kala Bagai — especially since she may not have spent much time living there, if she did at all?"

This episode of the Asian Americana podcast highlights the efforts to rename a street in downtown Berkeley in honor of Kala Bagai.
