Join us in celebrating Asian American Heritage Month 2019 from January 28 – February 7, 2019! The collection of events reflect our mission to create community, spread awareness of Asian American identities, and prompt students to take initiative and make actionable changes in their communities.
This year, we bring you Join the Convers(Asian), with the goal of expanding our discussions and collaborations not only in the Asian American Center, but with the student body at Northeastern and the Greater Boston Area at large. We hope that our events spark inquiry about who we are as Asian Americans and how we can collectively work together to promote mutual understanding and empowerment of our identities and complexities.
Thursday, 02/07 | 7-9pm | McLeod Suites
Our keynote speaker, Jamie Ford is a biracial American author who will be speaking to us about his experience and latest books. His novels discuss important issues pertinent to the Asian American historical experience, such as Japanese American Internment during World War II and the Chinese American experience during the Great Depression.
This event is funded by the Northeastern Student Activity Fee.
