MOCA to Host Conversation, “After Vincent Chin: A New Civil Rights Movement”

Next Monday evening, the Museum of Chinese in America will host a conversation with Frank H. Wu, Chancellor & Dean of University of California Hastings College of Law and author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, on the future of civil rights and civic engagement in multiracial America. IMDiversity.com notes: Yellow explores the position of Asian-Pacific Americans within America’s traditionally polarized, Black-White conception of race.  A Chinese-American professor of law at Howard University, Wu has a refreshing ability to write about topics such as civil rights and civil liberties, affirmative action and multiracial identity, in a manner that is informed by a keen understanding of history and policy while also being quite personal and emotionally honest.

The conversation will be moderated by Judge Denny Chin, currently the only federal appellate judge of Asian American descent on active status in the country.

$12/adult; $8/senior(65+); FREE for MOCA members, and teachers & students (with valid ID). RSVP REQUIRED to programs@mocanyc.org // 7pm // 215 Centre Street.
