East Wind Magazine, a premier print publication of the 1980s Asian American Movement, has been reborn. A product of a period of the flowering of new Asian American publications, East Wind returns as an on-line publication. Alongside Gidra in Los Angeles and numerous community newspapers published Asian American groups, East Wind distinguished itself with its high standards, broad content, and attractive layouts.
The revived East Wind, run by volunteer veterans of the original East Wind, resurrects the theme of “Politics & Culture of Asian Pacific America.” It hopes the new publication to “build bridges with younger generations of activists to forge a stronger movement.” It encourages general submissions and suggestions for topics. Please contribute if you can.
