Hosted by Sheryl Cavales Doolan
Thu. April 28, 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm 

In recognition of the 40th Anniversary of the Vincent Chin case, you are invited to a film screening of Vincent Who? and Q&A conversation with Director/Producer Curtis Chin. Vincent Who? recounts the 1982 murder of Vincent Chin, a Chinese American who was murdered in Detroit at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments, by two white autoworkers who blamed Chin for the loss of their jobs. Vincent Chin’s killers were given a $3,000 fine and three years probation but no jail time. Outraged by this injustice, Asian Americans around the country united for the first time across ethnic and socioeconomic lines to form a pan-Asian identity and civil rights movement.
