Created by DCPLReference | 8 items
Hate-related crimes targeting Asian Americans have seen a frightening increase since the pandemic began. Though the uptick in racist violence has left Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities disappointed, destroyed, and disgusted, it’s also the latest chapter in this nation’s centuries-long history of racism and bigotry against people of Asian descent. To help place the recent rise in anti-Asian hate crimes in context, we have compiled a reading list focused on the long and unjust arc of anti-Asian racism in America.
