Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The Cadena Cultural Center, Asian Pacific Islander Faculty & Staff Association, Ethnic Studies Department, and the District Staff Development Committee hosted the second annual Asian & Pacific Islander Forum on April 29, 2013. The forum included keynote speaker, Curtis Chin, who produced the documentary, "Vincent Who?", the story of Vincent Chin, 27, who was murdered in Detroit in 1982. The men who killed him were sentenced to only three years of probation and fined $3,000. “Remember Vincent Chin” became a rallying cry for Asian-Americans who protested in cities across the country. Students broke out into small discussion groups after viewing the documentary.
