Drs. Marshall Fleurant and Stan Sonu are colleagues and physicians at Grady Memorial Hospital.

But, more than that, they’re friends.

Recently, they took some time to talk — virtually — for StoryCorps. Marshall is Black, and Stan is Asian; they spoke about racial attitudes in the workplace.

This story was produced locally for WABE by Brenda Ford and recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center. You can book a time to speak with a friend using StoryCorps Virtual.
