Who Killed Vincent Chin Screening and Panel

The film relentlessly probes the 1982 murder of Chinese American Vincent Chin while chronicling Helen Zia and a generation of Asian American activists who came together to demand justice.

A panel discussion about the implications of Chin’s murder on current Asian American issues will follow, featuring a special appearance by filmmaker Renee Tajima-Peña along with Karen L. Ishizuka (Chief Curator, JANM) and Paula Williams Madison (CEO, Madison Media Management LLC).

This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov).
