Yellow, Where We Can Be

26 May

“Yellow, Where We Can Be” now available! Click here for a sneak peek into this collection of Asian Pacific youth stories and creative works from Minnesota!

“The idea for this book started with a simple question: Where are the stories of Asian America youth among the vastness of American literature?

Mixed into this query was the thirst to know more about themselves and a deep desire for others to know of them. Indeed, stories about them were far and few in between and rarer still were stories that were written by them. They realized that something was wrong for here they are, in America, living and breathing as Americans. And yet, their faces and stories were not a part of the images they saw every day in the media and or much less reflected back in the books and lesson plans they had in school, the place of learning and knowledge where they spent their days.

They determined that if no one was going to write their stories then they would write them and share them with world. The results of their determination are held within this book.”

Released at our Annual Heritage Banquet on May 13th, Yellow, Where We Can Be is now available for the general public.

Yellow, Where We Can Bewas funded with money from the arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
