video: "after vincent chin: a new civil rights movement" - a talk by frank h. wu


The Museum of Chinese in America recently hosted a dialogue with Frank H. Wu, Chancellor and Dean of University of California Hastings College of Law and author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, on the future of civil rights and civic engagement in multiracial America.

For those of us who missed it, MoCA has posted a video of the hour-long talk, which was introduced and moderated by Judge Denny Chin: "After Vincent Chin: A New Civil Rights Movement" A Talk by Frank H. Wu.



Frank H. Wu began his service as Chancellor & Dean of University of California Hastings College of Law in July 2010. Chancellor Wu is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White. Prior to his academic career, he practiced law with the firm of Morrison & Foerster in San Francisco.

Denny Chin is a United States Circuit Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. From 1994 to 2010, Judge Chin served as a United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York, presiding over both civil and criminal cases, including cases involving Megan's Law, the Google Books settlement, and the guilty plea and sentencing of financier Bernard L. Madoff. As of March 2011, he was the only federal appellate judge of Asian American descent on active status in the country.
