At last night’s conversation with Guy Kawasaki, someone in the audience asked about the 1982 Vincent Chin case and whether it made a difference to Guy’s perspective on racism or the treatment of Asian-Americans generally.
Neither he nor I had heard of the case. The questioner expressed some surprise, since she thought that it had been a big deal in the U.S.
I’m sorry to say I didn’t know a thing about it before today. So here’s the background: Murder of Vincent Chin
Friends commented on Facebook to tell me of a couple other solid resources:
- Remembering Vincent Chin, a retrospective and history by Alethea Yip (AsianWeek, June 1997)
- Who Killed Vincent Chin?, a 1987 movie
