The Roots of Asian America: A Benefit Concert
The pivotal 1973 album, "A Grain of Sand," helped galvanize many young Asians to embrace pride in a newly-found identity and is widely recognized as the soundtrack of the first generation to call itself "Asian American."
Through song, photos, and video, Nobuko Miyamoto will share the story of the origins and unfolding of the Asian American movement, and then point a direction forward.
