In times of #COVID-19, I’m doing two virtual shows this coming week! THIS Sunday 4/19 at 4pm watch Annie be interviewed on Dolly Li’s Instagram Live Page for the Plum Radio Podcast! Then Saturday 4/25 at 4:45pm watch Annie as one of the (virtual) keynote speakers for the New York City Asian American Student Conference! (NYCAASC)! Anyone is welcome to watch over Zoom!
This Sunday on Plum Radio: @bydollyli talks to Annie Tan, an NYC public school teacher, Chinatown native, and activist who’s been inspired by the legacy of her cousin, Vincent Chin. Vincent was a young Chinese-American man who was murdered in 1982 in a hate crime fueled by anti-Japanese sentiment and high unemployment across America. What can we learn from the death of Vincent Chin, and what does history tell us of what comes next with rising Anti-Asian xenophobia? Tune in at 4pm ET on @bydollyli’s IG account.
Crushing The Myth is excited to present a FREE line-up of amazing Asian American speakers to be the keynote program at NYCAASC‘s annual conference AMPLIFY, Saturday April 25th via Zoom link from 4:45pm-5:45pm.
Speaker #1 – Annie Tan, “How I Got My Asian American Groove Back”
Speaker #2 – (To be announced)
Speaker #3 – Calvin D. Sun, “Following Your Dreams Is Too Long Term For Me”
“NYCAASC (pronounced NIGH-sack) is an organization dedicated to bringing students from all throughout New York City together to educate and encourage them to think critically about Asian/Pacific Islander American issues such as gentrification, diversity in media, and more. We hope to empower APIA students to enact change within their respective communities in lasting and meaningful ways.”
