Welcome and thank you for joining us for our virtual screening of Asian Americans. This screening offers a sneak peek from the 5-part series, which illuminates the larger American story and explores the role Asian Americans have played in the evolution of the American identity, in the context of migration, diversity and global connectedness.
Throughout the screening, we encourage participants to chat and discuss with attendees, sharing your thoughts on the film. To follow, we are pleased to include a Q&A with one of the Asian Americans filmmakers, S. Leo Chiang.
