Asian/Pacific Islander Americans in the Civil Rights Movement presents an overview of the civil rights issues as they have affected the A/PIA existence and experience in America. We examine federal and state laws that have historically excluded A/PIAs from our shores, and limited A/PIA civil rights. We examine the legal challenges from the gold rush times, the WWII internment of Japanese Americans, and recent hate crime cases, to the fight over affirmative action, the battle over immigration, immigration reform, and family reunification, and other present day issues. The course features a mix of lectures, discussion, film, and guest speakers.
