Topic: An Introduction to the Asian American Experience
Facilitated by Xavier Hernandez, PhD
Diversity Education Officer, Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences

As we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May, the country finds itself at yet another moment of racial reckoning as it grasps with the seemingly random, senseless acts of violence that are targeting Asian Americans nationwide. While the immediate reactions to these tragedies link them to xenophobia and racism that has been perpetuated during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are also part of a much larger history of the Asian American experience. This presentation will provide both historical and contemporary examples of how the Asian American identity has shaped and been shaped by the history of the United States, and how these lessons highlight the growing crisis of racism as a public health issue for all people of color.
