July @ MOCA: Daily Walking Tours, David Henry Hwang, Helen Wan on the Bamboo Ceiling
Helen Wan is a novelist, lawyer, and speaker. She was a special guest speaker at AABANY conference in 2014. Her novel, The Partner Track, is the story of a young woman of color competing for partnership at a powerful law firm. It’s about how race, sex, and class impact talented people on the corporate ladder. It’s about trying to pursue success and live authentically in the workplace while staying true to ourselves.

On May 22, at New York Law School, AABANY together with the Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) and the Museum of Chinese in America, co-produced “Revisiting Vincent: The Legacy of the Vincent Chin Case 30 Years Later.” The slideshow above contains photos taken by Corky Lee who also shared with us at the event original photos from 1983 when the Asian American community erupted in protest in Detroit over the lenient sentence given to Vincent Chin’s murderers.
In addition to the performance, from a script based on the original trial transcripts, the Hon. Denny Chin and Dean Frank Wu provided a historical, legal and social context for the case during an engaging and lively talkback session following the performance. After that, audience members were invited to stay for a reception, at which Community Presenters OCA-NY, CAAAV and POV were available to engage in dialogue about how their current work is informed by and connected to the legacy of the Vincent Chin case.
