APA Artists on Overcoming Racism & Stereotypes

Taiwanese American and Asian American artists discuss their personal experiences with stereotypes and racism and how it influences their creative work. The interviews feature 2nd generation Taiwanese Americans such as actor Adam Wang of Formosa Betrayed, R&B singer-songwriter Dawen, music video producer / filmmaker Karen Lin, and creative director Jerry Ma of the Secret Identities Superhero Anthology. Other featured Asian American artists include Prohgress and Kevnish of Far East Movement, actor Parry Shen, and writer Jeff Yang.

These series of interviews were conducted by staff members of TaiwaneseAmerican.org and edited by Jason Lee of Turtlist Media for a presentation by Junior High Program counselors Kevin Lee, Justin Yang and Ann Wu at the 2009 Taiwanese American Foundation Summer Conference.

TaiwaneseAmerican.org is pleased to present this video with a brief introduction by staff member Justin Yang.

Did you know that many of our TaiwaneseAmerican.org staff members take a full week out of their schedule each year to serve as volunteer staff and organizers at the Taiwanese American Foundation Summer Conference? That’s where we re-inspire each other to serve our community! Check out other TAF Media videos by visiting www.YouTube.com/TAFmediachannel and TurtlistMedia.com
