COURSE DESCRIPTION: Interdisciplinary Intro to Asian American Diversity aims to ease racial tensions spiking amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. PBS' Asian Americans documentary series raises talking points to widen perspectives. We face perpetual challenges as foreigners struggling for the American dream beyond black-and-white diversity, equity, and inclusion. Join multicultural conversations respecting the immigrant diaspora's differences in promoting global understanding! We'll survey anti-Asian hate ranging from the Chinese Exclusion Act, to the Vincent Chin tragedy, up to responses to recent Asian wins at the Oscars.
