The Lawrence University Commitee on Diversity Affairs Presents: Incite to Appleton

ASIA A Presents: Vincent Who? Showing & Reflection/Discussion Forum

As a part of Asia-A Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month we will be showing a documentary called "Vincent Who?" to prompt students, staffs, faculty, and the Appleton community to think about the racial issues and injustice towards the Asian community.

Sat, May 2, 2015 at 11:00am & 5:00pm

Sun, May 3, 2015 at 12:00pm & 3:00pm


Following up with "Vincent Who?" documentary that was shown in Cinema, Asia-A will be holding a reflection and discussion forum about the film. A few points that will be brought are... unity of the Pan-Asian community and relating that to the Lawrence community, defining justice of the unjust in the film and how things are relevant in the world today, and how we can move on to bring support and awareness to community of Lawrence and Appleton.
