The Asian American Alliance hosts a “Teach-in”


An Asian American Studies minor is the newest minor at Tufts, but before the program was approved, the Asian American Alliance hosted a “Teach-In” to talk about what Asian American Studies is and why it’s important. The below video shows the meeting where they first present the audience with the question, What does studying Asian American identity mean?¬†They examine stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans, argue why they believe a minor is important to the Tufts community, and even discuss historical strikes on college campuses revolving around ethnic studies programs.¬† In their own words, the group is advocating for a “generational commitment to a robust Asian American studies, Africana studies, and Race/Ethnic studies program.”

Check out the Teach-In:
