Screening and Discussion of Who Killed Vincent Chin (1987, 87 mins)
October 3, 2012
Lecture Center C, Room 6
Just thirty years ago, Vincent Chin died a victim of a hate crime, and despite his brutal killing, the two Detroit men who took his life received only lenient sentencing with no prison time. In response, journalist and community activist Helen Zia and others became involved in an Asian American civil rights movement to bring national attention to this case and its verdict.This program is co-sponsored by the Asian American Resource and Cultural Center and the Honors College.
