Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever.
As America becomes more diverse, and more divided, while facing unimaginable challenges, how do we move forward together?
Told through intimate and personal lives, the series will cast a new lens on U.S. history and the ongoing role that Asian Americans have played in shaping the nation’s story.
