Noted author, musician and activist Simon Tam will be the featured speaker for an Arts and Lectures webinar titled “Slanted: How an Asian American Troublemaker Took on the Supreme Court.”The free Zoom webinar is at 6 p.m. on Oct. 28.

Tam is best known as the founder and bassist of The Slants, the world’s first and only all-Asian American dance rock band.

But when he applied to register a trademark on the band’s name, he had to fight all the way to the Supreme Court.

He eventually won a unanimous victory in the landmark case Matal v. Tam, helping to expand civil liberties for minorities.

Tam also leads The Slants Foundation, a nonprofit that supports arts and activism projects for underrepresented communities.
