Model Minority vs. Covid-19: Education Through Crisis, For Asians in America

Model Minority vs. Covid-19: Education Through Crisis, For Asians in America Online

This event will be broadcasted via Facebook Live on the Queens Memory Facebook Main Page, located here: https://www.facebook.com/queensmemory

Covid-19 has sparked an increase in racism against East Asians in America, whether immigrant or native born. However, racism against all groups of Asian descent has been around for much longer, with racist stereotypes and the model minority myth. Join Queens Memory and our partners for an online discussion about the current higher educational experience for Asians in America, who are facing the continuously evolving challenge of racism. We will also discuss how Asians in America can provide ally-ship and solidarity to other groups that are experiencing racial oppression.

Frank Wu, the incoming president of Queens College, will serve as moderator. He will be joined by the following guests: 

Joyce Moy-Executive Director of Asian American/ Asian Research Institute
Vivian Louie- Director, Asian American Studies Program & Center at Hunter College
John Chin-Professor of Urban Policy and Planning at Hunter College
Madhulika Khandelwal- Director of Asian/American Center at Queens College
A student representative from the Student Council of Asian/American Center at Queens College.

This program is sponsored by the Queens Memory COVID-19 Project of Queens College and Queens Public Library, the Asian/American Center at Queens College, and the Asian American/ Asian Research Institute - City University of New York.
