Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant

Join author Curtis Chin as he talks about his memoir about growing up working class, queer, and Chinese American in Detroit in the 1970s and 80s, a tumultuous period that saw the rise of anti-Asian racism, culminating in the murder of Vincent Chin by a white Detroit autoworker in 1982, and homophobia in the shadow of the early AIDS epidemic.

Chin, a self-described “writer/producer/director/activist,” co-founded the Asian American Writer’s Workshop in NYC in 1992 and worked on the acclaimed documentaries Vincent Who? (2009) and Tested (2015). Chin will be in conversation with Sylvia Chong, Associate Professor of American Studies and English at UVA.

This event is co-sponsored by the East Asia Center and the Program in Asian and Pacific American Studies at UVA.
