A look at the history of Asian Americans, and a last chance to watch the tale of a dark past | Passport Picks

May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. To start off this month is Asian Americans, a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever. As America becomes more diverse, and more divided while facing unimaginable challenges, how do we move forward together? Told through intimate personal stories, the series will cast a new lens on U.S. history and the ongoing role that Asian Americans have played.
