Later, leaders like Grace Lee Boggs and Larry Itliong would force a greater reckoning with the country’s past in order to extract social, economic, and legal change for their communities. Join MTV News correspondent Yoonj Kim and National Museum of American History Curator Theodore S. Gonzalves as they pick out lessons for the equally fraught landscape we face today.

A Chinese travel presenter has apologised to the public after a video of her eating a bat in 2016 went viral amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Wang Mengyun, who has gathered a massive following through her online travel show, is seen in the programme ripping apart the animal with her hands before eating it.

The three-year-old clip became widely shared on social media after the health crisis broke out in China, sparking an uproar from web users.

In a post last week, the globetrotter begged the public for forgiveness, calling herself ‘ignorant’. She wrote: ‘I am sorry, everyone. I should not have eaten a bat.’
