The term "Asian American" originated as a radical political identity in the 1960s, representing the racialized experiences of oppression shared by people of Asian ancestry living in the United States and developed in solidarity with other people of color in the "Third World." In this talk, Dr. Karen Buenavista Hanna challenges the erasure of Asian American anti-racist, cross-racial, and internationalist solidarity, presenting her research on the long history of transnational Filipina/o American activism.
