The Making of Asian America

From challenging immigration exclusion in the 19th century to protesting against racial violence during the COVID-19 pandemic, Asian Americans have helped to challenge discrimination and advocate for social justice for all.

Lecture Description

As the fastest growing group in the United States, Asian Americans are helping to change America. But much of their long history has been forgotten. In a lecture that spans centuries and continents, Lee shows that the long history of Asian Americans offers a new way of understanding America itself, its complicated histories of race and immigration, and its place in the world today.
