On the last day of the Asian Pacific Islanders Issues Series (APIISERIES) 2016 Conference, Author Karen L. Ishizuka will give a keynote presentation on her newly released book: "Serve the People: Making Asian America in the Long Sixties." There will be a panel discussion following including booksales and signing. This event is free and open to the public. Until the political ferment of the Long Sixties, there were no Asian Americans. There were only isolated communities of mostly Chinese,Japanese, and Filipinos lumped together as Orientals. Serve the People tells the story of the social and cultural movement that knit these disparate communities into a political identity, the history of how and why the double consciousness of Asian America came to be. Karen Ishizuka's vivid narrative reveals the personal epiphanies and intimate stories of insurgent movers and shakers and ground-level activists alike." Karen Ishizuka is the author of the books: Lost and Found: Reclaiming the Japanese American Incarceration and Mining the Home Movie. She has produced numerous award-winning films including "Something Strong Within" and "Toyo Miyatake: Infinite Shades of Gray," an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival. She served in the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles for its first fifteen years as senior curator, senior producer, and director of its Media Arts Center. She lives in Los Angeles.
