Asian American Identities: A National Story (with Mary Lui)

In honor of Asian/Pacific Islander Month, I thought you might enjoy this podcast episode.

Now and Then Podcast with Heather Cox Richardson and Joanne Freeman featuring special guest Mary Lui.

In the aftermath of two mass shootings involving AAPI populations, Mary Lui, a professor of History and American Studies at Yale, joins Heather and Joanne to discuss the influence of Asian Americans on the nation’s trajectory, from the origins of the “Old China Trade,” to the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, to the 1960s protest movements that fought for Asian American rights in the academy and beyond.
