The Asian Americans

Production of a six-hour television series exploring Asian American history from the late 19th century through the present.

The Asian Americans is a proposed public media initiative, centered around a six-hour film series, designed to engage the American public about the evolving identity, contributions, and challenges experienced by the nation’s fastest growing racial group, Asian Americans (2010 U.S. Census). Told through individual lives and personal histories, The Asian Americans will cast a new lens on the dramatic transformation of the United States since the mid-19th century, and the role Asian Americans have played in shaping that history.
