Asian Americans in Newton: Reflection and Reimagination

Did you know that our neighbors from China, India and Korea represent the three most prominent Asian American groups in Newton? Join us for a panel discussion as we explore and honor these various cultures in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The panelists will reflect on the impact of current events on the Asian American community, the successes and challenges of adjusting to life in a new country, and how we can all come together in solidarity. Participants will include:


  • Rakashi Chand, Massachusetts Historical Society 
  • Anping Shen, Newton School Committee  
  • Hyeouk “Chris” Hahm, Professor, B.U. School of Social Work 
  • Lisong Liu, Professor and Moderator


This program is part of the Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton series.
