Description

Presented by UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs as part of the Meyer and Renee Luskin Lecture Series

For better or for worse, our community vision and self-image has been shaped by — and in some unfortunate instances, tainted — by the way communities of color have been portrayed in mass media and popular entertainment. In this special conversation with filmmakers, scholars, and cultural workers, we will assess whether progressive change can be enacted by a paradigm shift in how we are portrayed onscreen, in print, and in other forms of commercial and independently-produced communication.

Panelists:

Justin Chon | Director/Actor/Writer, GOOK, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS

Gaye Theresa Johnson | UCLA Asso Prof, African American Studies and Chicana/o Studies

Ananya Roy | Professor of Urban Planning, Social Welfare and Geography, and Director of the Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin

Renee Tajima-Peña | Filmmaker/UCLA Asian American Studies Professor, WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN?, NO MÁS BEBÉS

Jenny Yang | Writer/Producer/Comedian, THE COMEDY COMEDY FESTIVAL: A COMEDY FESTIVAL

Moderator | Phil Yu, Writer/Speaker and Founder of ANGRY ASIAN MAN
