That Said with Michael Zeldin - Special Guest, Prof. Jennifer Ho

Throughout their history, Asians in America have faced massive racial discrimination from indentured servitude to exclusion laws through internment during World War II. Asian Americans continue to face ongoing discrimination in myriad ways. The Atlanta spa murders, while a grotesque manifestation of this history, is sadly not an isolated event.

Join Michael Zeldin in his conversation with Jennifer Ho, President of the Association for Asian American Studies, Director of the Center for Humanities & the Arts and Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder in a discussion of what it means to be an Asian American and especially an Asian American woman.

Happy 112th Anniversary to the NAACP!

W. E. B. Du Bois was a co-founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the Director of Publicity and Research during his time on the org's Executive Board (1910-1934). Ida B. Wells, considered a PR Pioneer, was also famously part of the founding of the #NAACP.

Du Bois started the committee's official publication "The Crisis," editing in creative pieces from African Americans and news about race issues.

The NAACP has long advocated for African American civil liberties, and continues to be a strong, vital civil rights organization today.
