Change Author / Owner : Google Hangout for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
What happens when you bring together Lisa Ling, Angry Asian Man, the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center? A seriously amazing conversation about Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! We're going to chat about the significance of APA Heritage Month and this year's theme, "I Want the Wide American Earth," and we'll take questions from you -- our supporters and fans. Send us questions by including #may1apa in your tweet, leaving a message on this event page, or emailing us at APAC@si.edu. Join us on May 1 from 3:00pm -- 3:45pm (EDT) for the Smithsonian's first Google+ Hangout. The video link will go live at the start time. You can watch via YouTube as these panelists participate in the Hangout. The Hangout will be archived on YouTube so you can watch it later at your convenience.
