May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, and who better to celebrate with than broadcast journalist Lisa Ling, Smithsonian APA Center Director Konrad Ng, and blogger Phil Yu of Angry Asian Man? The three of them, and more Asian American community leaders, held a Google Hangout on Wednesday, May 1 to talk about the event, including their personal stories and ideas for how to make Asian American history more widely known to the general population. The theme of the 2013 Asian-Pacific Heritage Month is “I Want the Wide American Earth” based on a poem by Filipino American writer Carlos Bulosan.
