Learning Asian American Histories
As expressed by Wayne Au and Moe Yonamine of Rethinking Schools, "It is clear to us that in this moment, not only do many Asian Americans not know their own history, but a lot of folks in other communities do not know our history either." Learning and teaching a complete history of Asian Americans experiences is a crucial tool for disrupting and dismantling structures and beliefs that lead to marginalization, oppression, erasure, and violence against Asian Americans. "As you learn or unlearn Asian American history, teach about the oppression from white supremacy, but also about the movements, activists, and solidarity across movements."
