Asians in Black & White America
Due to popular demand, this IN-PERSON event is now full and registration is CLOSED.
JUST CONFIRMED: We’re excited to announce the addition of Diversity Leadership expert Al Vivian to our distinguished panel for It’s Complicated! Asians in Black & White America, an exclusive documentary screening + expert panel discussion + reception.
Please join us for a candid conversation with:
- Crystal Kwok, actress-turned-documentary filmmaker
- Al Vivian, President, BASIC Diversity, Inc., Diversity Leadership expert
- Dr. Adria Welcher, Assoc. Professor & Chair, Sociology Dept., Morehouse College
- Hon. Carla Wong McMillian, Georgia Supreme Court and Augusta native
Our expert panel will do a deep dive not only into the provocative issues raised by the award-winning documentary, Blurring The Color Line: Chinese in the Segregated South, but also the often-uncomfortable and rarely addressed subject of how Asian and African American people get along, both historically and in the present.
For Crystal, what began as personal research into the history of her grandmother Pearl – neighborhood grocery store owners in the Black community of Augusta, Georgia – soon turned into a bigger story on what it means to grow up Asian in a black/white space.
NACA is proud to host this important event, together with The Carter Center, on SAT, March 25th, 2:00 – 5:30pm.
NOTE: This event will NOT be livestreamed, but we plan to record the panel discussion to post later on NACA’s website.
