Hey college students! I direct your attention to Boston... Next month, Northeastern University is hosting the Boston Asian American Intercollegiate Conference (BAASIC), organized annually by students in and around the Boston area.

The conference aims to encourage Asian American students to open the discussion of political, social, and economic issues in their individual communities. BAASIC also promotes positive exploration of Asian American culture and identity. This year's conference theme "What's Your Power?

This year's conference will feature performances from hip hop artists Magnetic North and Taiyo Na. Keynote speakers will be longtime community activist and author of The Snake Dance of Asian American Activism, Michael Liu, and poet/writer of The Heart's Traffic, Ching-In Chen.

The conference typically brings together 200-300 students every year from colleges and universities all over Massachusetts.
