Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

May 3, 2021

Welcome to Episode 25 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! Gen & Ted are about to transport you to Hawai’i… or at least the history of the islands! As we begin to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month, we start with the best known Pacific Islander group… the Hawaiians. It’s not all pineapples and hula… so what was Hawai’i like way before it became a state? We also talk a little about the origin of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month as well as a reflection on the Oscar wins for Asian Americans. Want to learn more?
