Harvard ArtsFirst Festival: Stories of Asian America
Sunday, May 1 | 12 PM ET | Lowell Lecture Hall
Join us on Sunday, May 1st, at 12p ET at Lowell Lecture Hall to kick off Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with a compelling storytelling hour. “Where are you from?” is a familiar question to most Asian Americans. This seemingly innocuous question dangerously stereotypes Asian Americans as the perennial other –– a stereotype that has been lethal to Asians all throughout history and fuels the rise of anti-Asian hate in recent years. To counter the harm, “In Our Own Words” elevates the lived experiences of the Harvard Asian diaspora through the power of narratives.
