Asian Americans in Newton: Reflection and Reimagination

May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Did you know that our neighbors from China, India and Korea represent the three most prominent Asian American groups in Newton? Join us for a panel discussion as we explore and honor these various cultures in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The panelists will reflect on the impact of current events on the Asian American community, the successes and challenges of adjusting to life in a new country, and how we can all come together in solidarity. Participants will include:

Rakashi Chand, Massachusetts Historical Society
Anping Shen, Newton School Committee
Hyeouk “Chris” Hahm, Professor, B.U. School of Social Work
Lisong Liu, Professor and Moderator
Shiv Sawhney, Newton Student

This program is part of the Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton series.
