Since May is Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month and many families are homeschooling, students and others have an opportunity to watch a 14-minute documentary, Finding Cleveland, free online May 4-8, 2020. The film will have a new special introduction by producer Baldwin Chiu and director Larissa Lam. Two Live Q&A sessions with Baldwin Chiu, Larissa Lam, and special guest, Emily Jones, curator of Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum and Delta State University archivist, will also be offered on May 7th at 3pm & May 8th at 7pm PST to field questions from people at home and also discuss a new film, Far East Deep South. Students and educators are encouraged to attend. The history of the Chinese in the MS Delta, the impact of the Chinese Exclusion Act on the Chiu family, and a preview of new film, Far East Deep South, will be further discussed in the session.

Don’t forget to check out our latest Love, Discovery and Dim Sum podcast where we continue our series addressing anti-Asian racism and give some long-term suggestions on “How to Mae People Less Racist.”
On a funnier note and especially, if you are a Star Wars fan, you need to watch our PSA video that answers the question, what if Darth Vader ordered delivery food during COVID-19?
