Scott Kurashige, Ph.D: Asian American Movements, Anti-Asian Violence & the Intersection with African American History
John Elliott Churchville, Ph.D., J.D.: African American Movements in Philadelphia & the Intersection with Asian American History
This project has been supported in part by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, the Federal-State Partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In December 2009, dozens of Asian immigrant students boycotted their high school and launched a civil rights campaign around a district’s responsibility to provide a safe educational climate. Asian Americans United and partners curate an exhibit featuring voices from a campaign that sought educational justice in a school struggling with violence and racial discord.
We Cannot Keep Silent was developed in partnership with the Philadelphia Folklore Project.
