Serve the Movement: Karen Ishizuka on the Making of Asian America

Historian Karen Ishizuka depicts the origins and trajectory of the Asian American Movement in Serve the People: Making Asian America in the Long Sixties (Verso). Her history, drawing from both oral narrative and cultural documentation, explores the formation of Asian American activism and identity during the Long Sixties. She discusses her research and reflects on the state of Asian America today, and how it has evolved since the days of Yellow Power.
