Asian Americans in an Anti-Black World
Join us for a timely conversation with writer Claire Jean Kim and Colorlines Publisher Dr. Charlene Sinclair. This free, virtual public event, co-hosted by the AAPI Civic Engagement Fund and Colorlines, coincides with the pending release of “Asian Americans in an Anti-Black World,” a forthcoming book by Claire Jean Kim with Cambridge University Press.
Today, more than ever, it is critical that Asian American and Pacific Islander communities join in solidarity with Black communities to advance racial justice.
Claire and Charlene will draw from new research to explore the positionality of Asian Americans relative to anti-Blackness and how this positionality is weaponized to reinforce structural anti-Blackness. They will also highlight ways that we can create new narratives to destabilize and effectively fight anti-Blackness, and the harm it perpetuates, to ensure shared prosperity, opportunity, and equity.

This event is co-organized by the AAPI Civic Engagement Fund and Colorlines, and co-sponsored by the National AAPI Power Fund, California Black Freedom Fund, Four Freedoms Fund, Groundswell Fund, Groundswell Action Fund, and the RISE Together Fund.
