March 2013: ”WE CANNOT KEEP SILENT”
Ongoing Exhibit at the Philadelphia Folklore Project
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 curated an exhibit featuring
voices from a campaign that sought educational justice in a school
struggling with violence and racial discord.
Featuring photographs by Harvey Finkle and Kathy Shimizu.
The exhibit will be open through March 29, 2013.
