Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Jan 10, 2022

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 2! It’s time to talk about music again, and we focus on the Asian Americans making an impact in R&B. Pretty much anyone who follows R&B knows H.E.R. and Bruno Mars, but the start for Asian Americans in R&B actually can be traced back to Hiroshima in the 70s and 80s. We also mention some other great new Asian Pacific R&B musicians like Keshi and Raveena. There are so many more amazing Asian Pacific artists, and several are getting opportunities through 88Rising and the 88NightMarket group as well as the JoyRuckusClub. We begin this episode by catching up on some current events that impacted the Asian Pacific American community including the #VeryAsian movement begun by award winning news anchor, Michelle Li. We also bring back our segment What Are We Watching, to talk about Snake Eyes and The Protege. To learn more, please visit our site at or for social media.
