Anti-Asian prejudice and discrimination has accelerated in the U.S. since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. President Biden and his administration have since vowed to address hate crimes and violence against Asian Americans, and Congress has passed historic legislation aimed at strengthening federal efforts to address such violence.
How can anti-Asian discrimination be understood alongside the struggle of Black and African Americans and other ethnic minorities? How have Asian Americans and Black Americans expressed solidarity against racial discrimination in the past? What does solidarity and allyship look like in the future?
The Carter Center and the Center for American Studies at Fudan University have jointly organized a webinar to address these questions from a uniquely trans-Pacific perspective. We are honored to have Dr. Qin Gao from Columbia University and Dr. Keisha Brown from Tennessee State University as panelists. Discussants from the U.S., China, South Korea, Vietnam, and Singapore will also participate.
