The REDI Task Force invites you to the next event in our "Critical Conversations: Race in Global Affairs" series. The recent rise of anti-Asian hate and violence in the midst of the pandemic and ongoing BLM movements makes us rethink race and racism in today’s America. This panel will examine historical roots of anti-Asian racism and how racial stereotyping, including the seemingly positive model minority stereotype, hurts the life chances of Asian Americans. The panel will also shed light on how this troubling moment can present an important opening for Asian Americans to challenge racialization and fight White supremacy in a transformative way. Two Asian American experts, Min Zhou (UCLA) and Eujin Park (Stanford) will share their insights on these pressing issues and engage in a conversation with REDI director Gabrielle Hecht, moderated by Shorenstein APARC director Gi-Wook Shin. This event is co-sponsored with CCSRE and Shorenstein APARC.
