THE VINCENT CHIN CASE REMEMBERED 25 YEARS LATER
Do you remember the details of the Vincent Chin case, the watershed Asian American civil rights case from 25 years ago? And what were the lessons learned from that important case? This article is to fill you in on the details and those lessons. The Facts On June 19, 1982, Vincent Chin, a 27 year old Chinese American was with three of his buddies for a bachelor party at the Fancy Pants Bar in Highland Park a few days before his upcoming wedding. By the end of the evening, Vincent Chin had been beaten by two white auto workers with a baseball bat and Chin was clinging to life, only to die four days later. Vincent got into an altercation with Ronald Ebens and his stepson Michael Nitz. Vincent and his friends, and Ebens and Nitz were told to leave the bar. Ebens got a baseball bat from the trunk of his car, and Vincent and his friend Jimmy Choi ran away. Ebens and Nitz drove around for 30 minutes looking for Vincent. Ebens and Nitz caught up to Vincent Chin on

Activist Oral Histories Special Section Seattle's Asian American Movement [Asian Coalition for Equality (ACE)] [Oriental Student Union Sit-In [Kingdome Protest] [ID Preservation] Although multi-racial coalitions between different immigrant groups had long played an important part in campaigns for civil rights on the West Coast, it wasn't until the 1960s and 1970s that diverse communities with different histories began to self-consciously unite as "Asian Americans." In Seattle, the Asian American movement emerged from an unusually deep legacy of multi-racial coalition building. During the 1930s, successful campaigns against bills that would have made interracial marriage illegal in Washington State brought Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino activists together, though Filipino activists took the lead. After World War II, the Jackson Street Community Council brought community leaders from Seattle's Asian and African American communities together to advocate for neighborhood improvement issues, which frequently included important civil rights advocacy. And in the early 1960s, City Council member Wing Luke and Human Rights Commission Chairman

    How was yellow power, or the Asian-American Civil Rights Movement, born? In watching African Americans expose institutional racism and government hypocrisy, Asian Americans began to identify the ways in which they, too, had faced discrimination in the U.S. Mao Tse-tung . Also, a founding member of the Black Panther Party Richard Aoki Like Aoki, a number of Asian-American civil rights activists were Japanese American internees or the children of internees. The decision of President Franklin Roosevelt to place more than 110,000 Japanese Americans in concentration camps during World War II had a detrimental impact on the community. Interned based on fears that they still maintained ties to the Japanese empire, Japanese Americans strove to prove that they were authentically American by assimilating. Yet, they continued to face discrimination. Speaking out about it, however, felt risky considering their past treatment.

    By TIMOTHY EGAN
    OCEAN SHORES, Wash., Oct. 12 On the Fourth of July weekend last summer, Minh Duc Hong and his twin brother, Hung, drove to this seaside resort town two hours southwest of Seattle, hoping to see fireworks. They stopped for food at a gas station here, where they were spotted by a group of white men waving a Confederate flag.
    The men used an ethnic slur, and shouted "go home" and "white power" as they waved the flag and pounded on the gas station windows, the police and prosecutors here say. The Hong brothers fled to their parked car, where one of the white men, Christopher Kinison, 20, punched Hung Hong in the face, the authorities said.
    When the Hongs fought back, Minh Hong used a kitchen knife from the gas station to stab Mr. Kinison, killing him, witnesses told the police. When it was over, the police arrested the Hong brothers and characterized the fight as an all-too-typical late- night fracas that got out of hand. Minh Hong was charged with

    ... selected as national book award finalist Some cool literary news... This week, Karen Tei Yamashita's novel I Hotel was announced as one of the 20 finalists for the National Book Awards , one of the most significant accolades in American literature. Better luck next time, Jonathan Franzen!
    I Hotel , divided into ten parts, is a sprawling historical novel set in the San Francisco Bay Area during the Asian American civil rights movement with a diverse cast of characters from the community. I haven't read it yet, but it sounds awesome. Here's the publisher's description:
    This dazzling, multi-voiced fusion of fiction, playwriting, graphic art, and philosophy spins an epic tale of America's struggle for civil rights as it played out in San Francisco. Divided into ten novellas, one for each year, I Hotel begins in 1968, when Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated, students took to the streets, the Vietnam War raged, and cities burned.
    As Yamashita's motley cast of students, laborers, artists, revolutionaries, and provocateurs make their way through the history of the day, they become caught in a riptide of politics and passion, clashing ideologies, and personal turmoil. And by the time the survivors unite to save the International Hotel—epicenter of the Yellow Power Movement—their stories have come to define the very heart of the American experience. Monica Youn's poetry collection Ignatz is also a finalist for poetry. And Paul Yoon's short story collection

    Known to its people as Choson An estimated 67 million people live on the Korean peninsula, with a population of approximately 43.9 million in South Korea and another 23.1 million residing in North Korea. Together they are racially and linguistically homogeneous. They are the ethnic descendants of a Tungusic branch of the Ural-Altaic family. Their spoken language, Korean, is a Uralic language with similarities to Japanese, Mongolian, Hungarian, and Finnish.
    EARLY HISTORY
    In its 5,000-year history, Korea has suffered over 900 invasions from outside peoples. Accordingly, the Korean people have found it necessary to defend fiercely their identity as a separate culture. Tungusic tribes from the Altai mountain region in central Asia made the peninsula their home during the Neolithic period around 4000 B.C.
