UCLA Asian American Studies Center announces the publication of "Asian Americans: the Movement and the Moment": a 350 page illustrated, oversized book that includes contributions from 25 writers and 50 artists (450 archival images).
"Asian Americans: The Movement and the Moment" captures the heart and soul of this nation-wide Asian American movement of the 60's and 70's through the words and images of those of us who lived it; "a people's history", if you will. "Asian Americans: the Movement and the Moment" is an anthology of writings from activists of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Pilipino, and Vietnamese heritage, representing a wide range of issues and geographic areas. The anthology contains a wealth of graphics and photographs contributed by artists nation-wide and priceless archival images from the Yuri Kochiyama ,Steve Louie and Ang Katipunan Collections. The anthology was developed under the guidance of editors: Steve Louie and Glenn Omatsu, and Graphics Editor, Mary Uyematsu Kao; themselves, thirty year veterans of the Asian American movement. This anthology will be integrated into Asian American Studies curriculums nation-wide and will , no doubt, be cherished in homes for generations to come. People of all nationalities can learn from our history and draw parallels to their own.
