Sheltering in place during Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month hasn’t been too bad. I was able to re-watch The Chinese Exclusion Act Documentary and another documentary about Tyrus Wong, an Asian American artist who worked for Disney and Warner Brothers.
I’m excited about this new documentary airing tonight called Asian Americans. Seems like a pretty comprehensive documentary about the Asian American experience.
Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that will chronicle the contributions, and challenges of Asian Americans, the fastest-growing ethnic group in America. Personal histories and new academic research will cast a fresh lens on U.S. history and the role Asian Americans have played in it. Premieres May 11, 2020. https://www.pbs.org/weta/asian-americans/
