THE INTERVIEW: Nigel Barker on His Career, New Book, & Sri Lanka HeritageMonday, June 08, 2015
Last week, Nigel Barker was in town to host Macy's Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event at First Colony Mall. It wasn't til recently, that I realized Nigel Barker was half Sri Lankan, from his mother's side. That was a fun fact to find out about him, who most assume with his British accent, that he's British. Macy's does a great job at celebrating all the diversity in the world. They host events around the country in honor of these diversities, from Black History Month to Hispanic Heritage Month. Before the event kicked-off, I was able to sit down with Nigel for a few minutes to ask him a few questions on his career, his new book, and how he became associated with Macy's Asian Pacific American Heritage event.
