Thirty-one years ago, in the summer of 1982, 27-year-old Vincent Chin was bludgeoned to death by two autoworkers who eventually avoided jail time and received probation and a fine as their punishment. The attack and lenient sentence ignited a movement of protest and activism never before seen within the Asian-American community. The 1987 Oscar-nominated documentary, Who Killed Vincent Chin?, probes the implications surrounding the murder and the aftermath that united Asian Americans seeking social justice.
Project by Project and our partner, Films News Now Foundation (FNN), will present a screening of Who Killed Vincent Chin? Come watch the film to learn and remember this pivotal moment in Asian-American history and to meet the film's director, Christine Choy of FNN, at our talkback and reception after the screening.
