Asian American History 101

Thanks for tuning in to our podcast!

Oct 18, 2021

Welcome to Episode 54! This is another episode in our ongoing series we call MFM, Most Forgotten Massacres. Today we’re going to talk about the Rock Springs Massacre and the Attack on Squak Valley. These were horrible moments in the history of the United States of America where large groups of Chinese laborers were targeted with violence and discrimination. A lot of things happened that led to these events, and we provide some of those details. In this episode, we also take time to recognize National Coming Out Day and highlight a few organizations doing great work for the Asian Pacific Islander LGBTQ community: the Visibility Project, the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA), and the Asian Pride Project.
