When: Tuesday, March 29
Where: Hurd room in the University Center

Here’s a little background regarding the documentary:

In 1982, at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments, Vincent Chin was murdered in Detroit. Asian Americans around the country galvanized for the first time to form a real community and movement. This documentary features interviews with the key players at the time, as well as a whole new generation of activists. “Vincent Who?” asks how far Asian Americans have come since then and how far we have yet to go.
