Question Description

Consider your overall outlook, knowledge and familiarity with Asian history in the U.S. and the potential struggles that Asian Americans have endured in the last century(s) as there was mass migrations in the middle of the 1800’s. Looking at the Asian American experience in America is important as we consider the building blocks of our nation, with railroads, industry, internment camps during WWII, the deep culture of education and tradition that is so socially important to the overall history of this group of study and the important contributions that we as a society have enjoyed from key figures in Asian American history.

We can all speak with a certain level of experience and knowledge, either directly or indirectly, to what we think would be important elements and issues to discuss within the Asian American culture.

Your assignment is to research our topic of Asian American Arts and find an article or video link that deals with this topic in some way. This can be issues of "Yellow Casting", insufficient roles for Asians, pay gap for Asian actors compared to white actors, how many of the stereotypes that we discussed are still seen and expressed in film and TV. today, or any article or video you feel are relevant to our topic and this assignment.
