Celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with your students by registering for this free virtual workshop for grades 3-5.

In this session of the Hidden Voices of New York City series, students will learn about three New Yorkers whose stories have too often been “hidden” from the traditional historical record, but whose lives and legacies continue to shape our collective history and identity in the city. Each of the individuals is featured in the Hidden Voices resource guides, which are aligned to the New York City Department of Education’s Passport to Social Studies.

Featured New Yorkers:

  • Yuri Kochiyama (1921-2014): A Japanese American civil rights activist, internment survivor, and friend of Malcolm X, who promoted social change through her participation in multiple social justice and human rights movements.
  • Wong Chin Foo (1847-1898) A key leader in the Chinese American community during the period of Chinese exclusion, who is credited with coining the term “Chinese American”
  • Vishavjit Singh (1972 – ) A Sikh American cartoonist and author who created the persona “Sikh Captain America “ to fight against stereotypes and promote better representation for his community.
