Let Me Tell You: Stories of Asian American Authenticity

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM


Join Mia Park and seven Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans (APIDA) from Chicago as they share their personal stories of staying authentic in the face of anti-Asian sentiment. Storytellers include mixed race, adopted, transgendered, and immigrant individuals from across the diaspora. This project is partially supported by Neighborhood Access Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events and by the generous underwriting of Barbara Levy Kipper.
