In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Standing in Solidarity focuses on the Asian American experience.

The event includes a screening of the award-winning documentary Far East Deep South, the PSEG True Diversity Film selection, about a Chinese American family’s search for their roots and the discovery of an immigrant community in the South in the wake of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.

Also revealed in the film is how the Chinese American settlers developed a symbiotic relationship with their Black neighbors during the Jim Crow era and bridged racial and ethnic divides in tumultuous times.

This event is a co-production of NJPAC and the New Jersey Chapter of Ascend, the largest global network advancing Pan-Asian professionals in the workplace and corporate boardrooms.
