In 1982, at the height of anti-Japanese sentiments, Vincent Chin was murdered in Detroit by two white autoworkers. “Vincent Who?” examines the history of this event and looks at the future of bigotry. The film is screened at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8, at Denison University’s Slayter Hall Auditorium (200 Ridge Road). The event is free and open to the public.
This documentary, inspired by a series of townhalls organized by Asian Pacific Americans for Progress on the 25th Anniversary of the case, features interviews with key players at the time, as well as a whole new generation of activists. “Vincent Who?” asks how far Asian Americans have come since then and how far we have yet to go. Sponsored by Denison’s Multicultural Student Affairs, Outlook, Women’s Resource Center and the Asian American Student Union.
