- Venue: 20 Cooper Square, 3rd floor
A/P/A Reads and A/P/A BRIDGE invite NYU students to join them for a co-hosted screening, conversation, and dinner. The meeting will center discussions of Black-Asian relations and the question of cross-racial solidarity by examining scholarly and creative texts inspired by A/P/A BRIDGE’s political focus and A/P/A Reads’s literary focus. The selected text is “Where is the Reciprocity? Notes on Solidarity from the Field” by Naoko Shibusawa (Professor of American Studies, Brown University).
Students are encouraged to read the article in advance. Printed copies will also be provided.
A/P/A Reads is a student-run book club for NYU students with an interest in A/P/A writing and literature. Members meet monthly to discuss selected works, and engage in meaningful dialogue together.
A/P/A BRIDGE was created by Asian/Pacific/American (A/P/A) student leaders to cultivate “A/P/A” as a political identity. The group serves to foster spaces for the discussion of race, identity, and politics; and develop community organizing and leadership skills.
Both groups are sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.
