As the Covid-19 threat grew, we – one African-American, one Japanese-American and me, a European-American – shifted our occasional long lunches of serious conversation and hilarity to the web.

The more we explore, the more fascinated we become. We are now digging deeper and have no idea where this will lead us. A book? A documentary? A series of stories?
