For Asian American Heritage Month, Dr. Stephanie Han presented an exciting two-part lecture series on the events and personalities crucial to shaping Korean American culture and history over the last 100+ years. Dr. Han explored the various narratives of “Korean America”, examines how this immigrant community has evolved as it is intersected with mainstream America, and shares how Korean Americans are contributing to the United States and the world. Part II of this session covered the end of the Korean War period and takes us through the rapid changes in Korean American immigration to the LA Riots “SAIGU” and the present day.
Hosted by the Council of Korean Americans and the Chinese American Heritage Foundation.
