The May 19 Project, co-founded by AASD professor Renee Tajima-Peña and AASD M.A. alum Jeff Chang, has a new home on @KCET! In addition to the 14 videos on the legacy of AAPI solidarity with other communities, there are special features and articles that contextualize and expand upon this legacy. The videos dropped today on May 19, in celebration of the birthday of Yuri Kochiyama and Malcolm X and the May 19 Project series leads with a video about their friendship.
