Asian American Life reports on Asian American Studies and how advocates and scholars are asking schools and universities nationwide to make Asian history a part of their curriculum. This is critically important during this time of anti-Asian hate in the United States. Host and reporter Ernabel Demillo traces the history of Asian American studies and interviews Vivian Louie, Ph.D, Director of Hunter College Asian American Studies, and Joyce Moy, Executive Director of Asian American & Asian Research Institute at City University of New York.
Ernabel Demillo is the host of Asian American Life, a monthly half hour series about the fastest-growing immigrant group in the country, focusing on Asian Americans in the tri-state area from over 40 countries who speak more than 150 different languages and dialects. Every month, an Asian enclave and neighborhood within the tristate area is featured. Cutting edge issues like racial profiling and stereotyping are examined and explored. Successful Asian Americans who are forging new identities in business, politics and the arts are also be profiled. Asian American Life is reaching new frontiers in the quest for understanding and acknowledgment among tri-state Asian Americans.
