Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Asian Pacific Americans are a community of communities...one that is diverse, global and impactful. From Bangladeshi to Vietnamese, these populations continue to grow across the country, in small towns and big cities. Though many straddle the cultural line between being Asian/Pacific and American, their stories - of family, food, language and more - are the key to what makes them who they are. This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, WORLD Channel shines a light on the generations of Asian Pacific Americans whose identities are not just singular but run deep in American history.

In May, WORLD will showcase stories by and about this multicultural community. Featuring a thoughtfully curated selection of documentaries, viewers can watch or stream over 40 films and programs, including from our exclusive series America ReFramed, Doc World and Local, USA, premieres from Pacific Heartbeat and Reel South, and the anticipated The Asian Americans from PBS -- each explores the very core of who APAs are from past to present and into the future.

Join the conversation - on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - with WORLD, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC), and PBS. Share your story using the hashtag #MyAPALife and #WORLDChannel!
