Asian American Histories of the United States
Thursday, September 15 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
In-Person in San Francisco
Join Asia Society Northern California on Thursday, September 15 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Pacific for a public, in-person program in San Francisco with Catherine Choy, Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Justice at UC Berkeley and Professor of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies, who will discuss her new book, Asian American Histories of the United States.
Her book features the themes of anti-Asian hate and violence, erasure of Asian American history, and Asian American resistance to what has been omitted in a nearly 200 year history of Asian migration, labor, and community formation in the US. Choy argues that Asian American experiences are essential to any understanding of US history and its existential crises of the early twenty-first century.
This program will be moderated by Russell Jeung, co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate, Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, and 2022 Asia Game Changer West Honoree.
After the public program, Professor Choy’s book will be available for purchase and book signing from 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
