Join us this Sunday, April 18th at 4 pm for the return of Many Roads to Here, a production of The Immigrant Story, and the premiere of its new series, Many Roads in Conversation. Listen live at 99.1 FM in the heart of Portland – or online anywhere at PRP.fm.
Introducing Many Roads in Conversation, where we look deeply at issues affecting ethnic and migrant communities within the United States. This inaugural three-part series will focus on the roots of anti-Asian violence. Joining us for the first episode of the series are Jennifer Fang, director of education at the Japanese American Museum of Oregon, and Eliza Canty-Jones, editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly. In this conversation, they talk through the issues raised by recent hate crimes against Asian-Americans, including historical restrictions on Asian immigration and how modern liberation movements might address acts of hate.
Many thanks to Jennifer Fang and Eliza Canty-Jones for agreeing to have this important and timely conversation, and for letting us eavesdrop on it.
