As part of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we asked staff and faculty from UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center and across campus to share some suggestions of things to read, watch or listen to that celebrate the history, culture, struggle and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Barbra Ramos, marketing manager at the Asian American Studies Center, recommended two of the center’s recent publications.
It is a visual journey into Asian American activism from 1969 to 1974 by way of never-before-seen photographs.
Irene Suico Soriano, office manager for UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center, is a poet, independent literary and film curator and activist.
Melany De La Cruz-Viesca, deputy director of UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center, recommended a film, book and music.
