About Houston’s Asian American JourneysIn partnership with the University of St. Thomas MAX Studios, Asia Society Texas presents a new video series, Houston’s Asian American Journeys.
Featuring Houstonians who reflect the richness and diversity of the local Asian American communities, the series highlights a variety of experiences, cultures, religions, and ethnicities and explores themes of identity, memory, and shared humanity.
In sharing these personal journeys, Asia Society Texas and the University of St. Thomas seek to build empathy and connectivity between people, as well as deepen our collective understanding of Asian American experiences in Houston.
