The USC Pacific Asia Museum, the Chinese American Museum, and the Japanese American National Museum present Stronger Together: Black Liberation and Asian Solidarity. Join a discussion on this historic moment in the movement for Black lives, and the importance of cross-movement solidarity and coalitional consciousness. 

Panelists include Melina Abdullah, Co-founder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles and Professor of Pan-African Studies, Warren T. Furutani, Co-founder of the Manzanar Committee and former California State Assemblymember, and Kai Naima Williams, Author and Executive Director of Eat At The Table Theatre Company. The conversation will be moderated by Sandra So Hee Chi Kim, Founder and Co-Executive Director of Asian American Justice + Innovation Lab. They will reflect on the history of Black-Asian solidarity and what we can learn from the past in order to live in a liberated future. The panel will also offer thoughts on how we move forward following the much anticipated November 3rd presidential election results. 

This event is part of “Reimagining ‘Normal’,” a JANM series exploring race and racism in the United States.
