Smithsonian's Lisa Sasaki Is Helping To Bring The Stories Of Asian Pacific Americans To The Public
The power of telling these stories comes from people feeling heard or seen for who they are, whether as an artist or as an audience member. In the words of Nesima Aberra, an Eritrean-American Muslim artist who shared her poetry and music with audiences during a program co-presented by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Kennedy Center, “I don’t do this often, but I felt very encouraged and inspired to put myself out there.” This particular performance, called “Now You See Us: From Periphery to Presence,” explored Central and South Asian diaspora narratives that are routinely marginalized within the broader cultural landscape of the United States. It was also the first time that a group of performing artists from four different religious traditions worked together, and I am told that “the stories, laughs, and tears shared were unforgettable.” By activating voices from different racial and religious backgrounds, the Center aspires to build trust and create collaborations that span our differences.
Actress Bekah Jung: “We need more films and shows that have more than just a token Asian"
"I would like to champion more diversity in the industry. I fully support Asians in non-traditional roles as well. Crazy Rich Asians and Fresh Off the Boat have done a lot to bring attention to Asian actors. Outside of productions that are intentionally all Asian, it would be great to see more films and shows that have more than just a token Asian (or any minority for that matter). I also really want to see an Asian superhero. Shang Chi got the green light so that will be awesome! I also really want to see a Silk (Korean American superhero) movie, it’s something I’ve wanted to have an opportunity to play for a while. Not just Asian villains or Asian sidekicks/friends, or supporting roles but headlining Asian heroes. (And heroes doesn’t always mean superhero, heroes come in all shapes and sizes.) But I’d like to see more Asians in leading roles overall. I would like to see the stereotypes broken."
