APA Compass on 04/06/12
Tune in to APA Compass this Friday, April 6, 2012, at 9 A.M. We'll have a provocative roundtable discussion about the Coalition of Communities of Color's "Unsettling Report" on the Asian Pacific Islander Community in Multnomah County. Surprisingly, the local API community is worse off than that of Seattle or the nation, and we'll discuss why with Prof. Ann Curry-Stevens, June Arima Schumann, and Rev. Joseph Santos-Lyons. In addition, we feature interviews with Cathy Chung, author of "Forgotten Country"; and with Samip Mallick, president of the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) which documents the early immigration by South Asians into Oregon and other unknown stories of the community in the United States.
APA Compass is collectively produced by Luann Algoso, Kushlani de Soyza, Thuvan Hoang, Sarika Mehta, Anna Preble, Toni Tabora-Roberts, Liz Roberts, Brian Yarne, and Andrew Yeh. We promote social justice, feature APA arts and culture, and challenge how APAs are represented in the media. You can download podcasts of our program at kboo.fm/apacompass.
