Jeff Yang, a bestselling writer/CNN commentator and Phil Yu, aka the “Angry Asian Man” blogger discuss their exciting new mixed media book with Michelle Germinario of AAPI Montclair.
“Rise” is a love letter to and for Asian Americans–a vivid scrapbook of voices, emotions, and memories from an era in which Asian American culture was forged and transformed, and a way to preserve both the headlines and the intimate conversations that have shaped the community into what it is today.
