Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Jun 14, 2021

Welcome to Episode 32 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! Our main story is a history of the Legislation, mostly at the Federal level, that actually benefitted Asian Americans. Sometimes Asians and Asian Americans were the focus, but other times, our communities received positive benefits just out of happenstance. There were also moments in time when Supreme Court rulings helped Asian Pacific Americans, so we mention a few of those as well. And finally, we bring back the feature of “What Are We Reading” in Asian American literature and share Last Night at the Telegraph Club and We Hereby Refuse: Japanese American Resistance to Wartime Incarceration.
