The past year has been a pivotal one for Asian Americans. In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and continued violence against AAPIs, we at CAAM continue to be reminded of the importance and power of our mission to showcase the richness and diversity of the Asian American experience. The work CAAM does matters, now more than ever.
“We as a nation are revisiting the complicated racial narratives of the United States, and it is important to recognize that Asian Americans are and have long been a part of the South,” says CAAM Executive Director Stephen Gong. “CAAM is pleased to partner on this project to bring these diverse documentaries to public media that represent a more authentic portrait of the regional South.”
