What I have attempted in this book is to trace the topography and rich textures of the Asian American experience as it is expressed in Asian American literature from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Although I have used my understanding of Asian American social history to interpret the literature, I have focused on the evolution of Asian American consciousness and self-image as expressed in the literature.

Asian American History. What others are saying. Stereotypes, we still do not understand the impact it has to the individuals lives. I call bullshit this is complete crap people get called terrorists for wearing humans and yet they get praised. We live our life judging, assuming stereotypes for race, that we completely ignore the negative effects on people. Louder Than Most Women: Pre-Activity for Night by Elie Wiesel.

Asian American rhetorics, produced through cultural contact between Asian traditions and US English, also comprise a dynamic influence on the cultural condition.

The history books didn’t include Chinese Americans, or Asian . Yet traditional American K-12 curriculum continues to be taught from a Eurocentric point of view.

The history books didn’t include Chinese Americans, or Asian Americans as a whole. Neither did the Nancy Drew mysteries that I enjoyed reading. I finally had the opportunity to learn about Asian Americans like myself, and how we became part of the fabric of the United States, when I took an introductory class on Asian-American history in college. The class was a revelation. Being multicultural often falls back on weaving children of color into photographs, or creating a few supporting characters that happen to be ethnic - an improvement, but superficial nonetheless.

The first biography of an American-born Korean woman, Doing What Had to Be Done is, on the surface, the life story of Dora Yum Kim.

The first biography of an American-born Korean woman, Doing What Had to Be Done is, on the surface, the life story of Dora Yum Kim. But telling more than one woman's story, author Soo-Young Chin offers more than an unusual glimpse at the shaping of a remarkable community activist. In addition -- as she questions her subject, introduces each chapter, and reflects on how Dora's story relates to her own experience as a Korean American who immigrate to this country as an adult -- she carves around Dora's compelling story and courageous life story a story of her own and one of all Korean Americans. Born in 1921, Dora, as she tells Chin her story, chronicles the shifting salience of gendered ethnic identity as she journeys through her life. Traveling through time and place, she moves from San Francisco's Chinatown -- where Koreans were a minority within a minority -- to suburban Dewey Boulevard where Dora and her family attempt to integrate into mainstream America, and where she becomes a social worker in the California State Department of Employment. As the Korean immigrant community grows in the late 1960s, Dora becomes deeply involved in community service. She remembers teaching English to senior citizens and preparing them for their naturalization exams, finding jobs for the younger Koreans, and founding a community center and meals program for seniors. A detailed and inspiring lens through which to view Korean American history, Dora's life journey echoes the changing spaces of the American social landscape. And the grace and ease with which Dora just u0022does what has to be doneu0022 shows us the importance of everyday acts in making a difference.
