Vincent Chin: Lessons of Being the 'Other' in America

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you know the story of Vincent Chin in Detroit? His violent death in 1982 sparked a national Asian American movement. As we examine his story, what can we learn about current events? This interactive workshop will engage participants in popular education, artistic expression, and small group collaboration to reveal the many intersections of being the "other" in America.
