This virtual lecture introduces attendees to North America's history of anti-Asian racism, highlighting Pacific Northwest history and stories, and how the model minority myth attempts to continually devalue Asian American voices and stories today. We will also learn more about how to unlearn and critically examine common misconceptions of Asian American history and actively learn to participate in anti-racism that best serves alongside our Asian American siblings better.
This program is presented by Dr. Nina Kim Hanson. Dr. Hanson is an educator, anti-racist bridge builder, and member of the Lake Stevens Allies for BIPOC Advisory Board.
This event will be recorded for later viewing on the Sno-Isle Libraries YouTube channel. This recording will be available for six months following the event.
