Troy Osaki community activist, poet and University Of Washington American Ethnic Studies alum and Seattle University School Of Law student writes an ode to Bruce Lee.
“As a martial arts movie star, Bruce Lee dismissed his enemies with ease. But his greatest nemesis was never shown on screen. Seattle poet Troy Osaki channels the spirit of Lee to reveal the racism the actor faced in Hollywood. For much of his career, Lee was typecast and marginalized by movie studios — deemed unfit for leading roles. He had to move back to Asia to star in films and write and direct his own work.”
