A Chinese American family’s search for their roots leads them to the Mississippi Delta.
Asian American Pacific Islander Stories
2021 is the year of appreciation...for the traditions, the cultures, the innovations, and the many voices of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Throughout May, WORLD Channel will share AAPI stories of defiance, solidarity and humanity - the untold history of Chinese immigrants in the segregated South, young Asian American students discovering who they are in the lead up to a theatrical performance, and AAPI changemakers like novelist Amy Tan, footballer Adam Goodes, and singer-actor Stan Walker. From America ReFramed to Pacific Heartbeat, watch new films and much more on WORLD, the PBS app and YouTube.
Discuss and engage on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #AAPIstories and tagging us @worldchannel. Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube for more features including events and interviews.
