About This Collection

What is your identity? For Asian Pacific Americans, the answer may be as much about being Asian-Pacific as it is about being American. This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, WORLD Channel continues to put a spotlight on the evolution of the identity for immigrants and refugees, and the generations of APA children who have not one, but two identities.

In May, #MyAPALife puts the spotlight on APAs with over 40 stories by, about and for this multicultural community. Featuring the best of public media's documentaries, WORLD is showcasing films from exclusive series America ReFramed and Local, USA, and the premiere of The Chinese Exclusion Act from American Experience -- all of these programs explore the very core of what this very diverse identity/identities is/are from the past to the present and into the future.

Join the social conversation all month-long with WORLD Channel and its series, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC), and PBS. Share your stories with us using the hashtag #MyAPALife!
