Viral Histories: Stories of Racism, Resilience, and Resistance in Asian American Communities

Smithsonian Education
How do we strengthen a community in the middle of an emergency? What drives us to build community strength and resiliency during an emergency? During this pandemic, Asian Americans have been experiencing increased racism and hate crimes. While these incidents of increased prejudice and violence occur today, they reflect a long history of how power, prejudice, and public health have intersected throughout American history. During Asian Pacific American History Month, join us for (digital) conversations with community leaders combating racism while serving on the front lines. Community leaders will share their first-hand experience with historians from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, who will connect these experiences to the past. During the week of May 18 a new interview video will be released Monday through Thursday at 9:00 am EDT, followed by an opportunity for a live Q&A with some of the featured speakers every day at 3:00 pm EDT. Note: The videos will be appropriate for high school students as well as curious adults. Resources will be available for teachers to make this part of their distance learning plans. https://americanhistory.si.edu/events/viral-histories-stories-racism-resilience-and-resistance-asian-american-communities http://learninglab.si.edu/q/ll-c/ng8xNRzWAEaKWm9M
