Between the AIDS crisis, attacks on the National Endowment for the
Arts, and the Miss Saigon controversy, artists and activists in the
early ’90s needed to find new ways to build solidarity and counter
invisibility. Founded in 1991, the Asian American Writers Workshop
(AAWW) was a product of these times.
Join a discussion with two of the organization’s co-founders – Curtis
Chin, award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker, and
acclaimed novelist Bino Realuyo – and learn how the AAWW built the
foundation from its roots. The discussion will be moderated by
Vivian Louie, Director of the Asian American Studies Center and
Program at Hunter College and Professor of Urban Policy and
