5/10/2020In late March, the actor Daniel Dae Kim posted a video on Instagram revealing that he had tested positive for Covid-19.
He documented his recovery process online while most Americans were just beginning to comprehend the impact of the pandemic.

Premiering Monday on PBS, the five-part special is the most ambitious documentary project ever to chronicle the history of the Asian-American community.
