You may have heard about the sad racist attack on Dr. Prabhjot Singh, an assistant professor at Columbia University in New York.

Prabhjot Singh Columbia University Sikh

After such an awful attack, you would expect the guy to be bitter and angry, right? Not Dr. Prabhjot Singh.

“This is not the Harlem I know. If anything, [this experience] makes me more committed to our community and the work we do there.”

Watch Dr. Singh talk about his experience and his desire to work together to build a healthier community. (Racists be damned).

Fast forward to 1:15 in the video to catch Prabhjot Singh’s story.
