The Austin History Center invites you to the Taking it to the Streets: Asian American Voices of Resistance panel discussion on Saturday October 13 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM in the David Earl Holt Photo Gallery at 810 Guadalupe Street. Light refreshments will be served.
This panel discussion is a companion program to the Taking it to the Streets: A Visual History of Protest and Demonstration in Austin photo exhibit currently on display at the Austin History Center. Due to commonly perpetuated “model minority” stereotypes, Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) activist movements and community members have been widely underrepresented across the country and in our archives. The event will bring together Austin AAPI community members who have been committed to creating transformational change within the city. Topics discussed will include aspects of their work, AAPI identity and activism, and how movements are documented. Attendees will gain insight into the panelists’ work and have the opportunity to engage in a moderated Q&A. This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Asian American Studies at the University of Texas.
