Editor Mae Ngai  will be in conversation with contributor and filmmaker Renée Tajima-Peña  about Corky Lee’s Asian America , a new book that presents an iconic photographer’s work and a sweeping, rich visual account of the Asian American Pacific Islander social justice movement.

Corky Lee’s Asian America  traces Lee’s decades-long quest for photographic justice, following Asian American social movements for recognition and rights alongside his artistic development as an activist social photographer. Featuring never-before-seen photographs alongside his best-known images, this book represents Lee’s mission to chronicle a history of inclusion, resistance, ethnic pride, and patriotism.

Corky Lee’s Asian America  will be available for purchase at the JANM Store in April.
