Cal State Northridge recently held two fascinating lectures on the history of race in America. We have been fortunate enough to invite a speaker to share some information with us.
On Saturday 26th at 7 pm PST, we will meet and discuss the difficult history of Asian Americans, including Chinese, in the United States. Everyone is invited to attend. There is no limit to the number of people and anyone who is interested can come.
Dr. Phillip Hutchinson, Asian American Studies, CSUN: The Contemporary Importance of Asian American History: Bridging Past and Present; 7-8:30 PM, June 26th, 2021 (Saturday)
Introduction: "The past is never dead. It's not even past." I would like to share moments in Asian American history that help us understand the roots of the forever foreigner and model minority stereotypes, especially as they continue to affect Asian Americans today. History will remain the primary focus of the talk.
