Join Pacific Underground for celebrating the month of May as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!


It's still May and it's still Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! We thought we would replay our APA Heritage Month episode from last year.

While past listeners may remember that the commemoration of this month has been somewhat controversial among members of Pacific Underground, this year we are choosing to highlight certain important figures and moments in the Asian American movement that got us to where we are today.

Producers Jake, Jenna, Kat and Tabitha share what we've discovered about San Francisco's International Hotel, Detroit Chinese-American activist Grace Lee Boggs, and Filipino American supermodel, TED speaker and transgender advocate Geena Rocero.
