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 shared how Korean Americans are contributing to the United States and the world. Part I of this session covered 1882 Diplomatic relations between Korea and the US, the early days of immigration, and the Korean War.
Hosted by the Council of Korean Americans and the Chinese American Heritage Foundation.
