@ Jones: Film & Discussion

Vincent_WhoDocumentary Screening & Discussion of “Vincent Who?” February 5, 2015 at 7 pm in the Woodbury Room Free and open to the public

Vincent Who? is a powerful film about the 1982 murder in Detroit of Vincent Chin by two white autoworkers. The film explores this event through interviews with the key players at the time, as well as a whole new generation of activists whose lives were impacted by Vincent Chin. It also looks at the case in relation to the larger narrative of Asian American history, in such events as Chinese Exclusion, Japanese American Internment in WWII, the 1992 L.A. Riots, anti-Asian hate crimes, and post-9/11 racial profiling.

This film & discussion series takes a look at issues of race, and is co-sponsored by the Jones Library and The Coming Together Project. A facilitated discussion will be held after the screening.
