“There was a time,” Karen Ishizuka reminds us, “when the word Asian American was not merely a demographic category but a fight you were picking with the world,” writes Jeff Chang in the foreword to Karen Ishizuka’s new book, Serve the People: Making Asian America in the Long Sixties (Verso), a movement history detailing the stories of activists both on the West Coast and in New York.

Karen L. Ishizuka is a Japanese American sansei and Asian American activist based in Los Angeles. The author of Lost and Found: Reclaiming the Japanese American Incarceration, a documentary film producer and museum curator, Ishizuka also helped establish the Japanese American National Museum. Expected to join us tonight are some of the local activists Karen Ishizuka portrays in her book.
