In his critically acclaimed book Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, author and president of Queens College, City University of New York, Frank H. Wu argues for a new paradigm of civil rights while challenging the damaging stereotypes of the model minority myth and perpetual foreigner syndrome. His work has become canon in Asian American Studies. In the aftermath of shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, and the growing rise of anti-Asian violence, Frank H. Wu continues to challenge the current discourse on civil rights. His talk with CHSA will discuss the future of the Chinese in American, as well as the outlook for civil rights.
