Performance, Talkback, and Reception

Tuesday, May 22nd 6:30PM
One night in Detroit in June 1982, while celebrating his bachelor party, 27-year-old Vincent Chin was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat by two autoworkers who blamed him for the plight of the Detroit auto industry. His killers never served a single day in jail.

Asian Americans consider the Vincent Chin case and its aftermath as the genesis of the Asian American civil rights movement, opening the way for hate crime legislation and other means for all Americans to seek redress within the legal system for acts perpetrated against individuals solely because of their race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation or ethnic background.

REVISITING VINCENT is a staged presentation of the transcripts from the Vincent Chin case. This dramatic adaptation is composed of original trial transcripts, video interviews, and personal testimonies. Introduction by Hon. Denny Chin, United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
Talkback moderated by Dean Frank Wu, University of California, Hastings College of Law Artistic direction by Soriya Chum and Elena Chang, Asian American Arts Alliance.

Location : New York Law School, 185 West Broadway at Leonard Street
