Join us for WGBH’s annual celebration of Asian/Pacific American culture. This year, we will spotlight selections from "Asian Americans," a groundbreaking PBS film series that chronicles the contributions, and challenges of Asian Americans, the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. The series looks at ways in which the Asian experience illuminates the larger American story and explores the role Asian Americans have played in the evolution of the American identity, in the context of migration, diversity and global connectedness.


We will share highlights from the five-hour series, which will be followed by a discussion moderated by Pam Eddinger, president of Bunker Hill Community College and WGBH Trustee. Event panelists will include:
• S. Leo Chiang, producer of Asian Americans
• Renee Tajima-Peña, series producer of Asian Americans
• Winifred Chin, author of Paper Son, One Man’s Story


Asian Americans is a production of WETA Washington, DC, and the Center for Asian American Media for PBS (CAAM), in association with Independent Television Service (ITVS), Flash Cuts and Tajima-Peña Productions.


The virtual screening and discussion begins at 7pm ET. To register, visit: wgbh.org/apaevent
